"This is where the magic happens!"
ABC workshop attendee, University College London
Designing learning and assessment in a digital age does not mean casting aside everything you have previously done.
Our appreciative inquiry approach asks you to understand better what has and has not worked, to be clear about who you are designing for and the pedagogic purposes that are appropriate to those students.
Your aim is to build on your successes while avoiding any difficulties you encountered previously, while building in digital learning wherever appropriate. Designing in a digital age means making full and creative use of the technologies available to you to add a new dimension and greater excitement to learning.
‘Thinking digital' is not just about putting paper resources on screen. Look for opportunities to develop:
- Learner-centred approaches
- A more fluid, responsive curriculum
- Learning activities that allow for different outcomes
- Teaching that is adaptive to student needs
Many of the tools and techniques we suggest in this section can be used for any scale of learning, but for clarity, our guidance in this section is offered under the headings of courses, modules or individual lessons. In each section, you will also find ways of moving forward.
