“Pedagogy 'off the shelf’ denies the fact the context must come first. Think about who the people are you are designing for, and what you want to happen. Pedagogy itself is open to differences in terms of personnel, students and context.”
Peter Shukie, education studies course leader, Blackburn College
Listen to our interview with Peter Shukie, who talked to us about his experience of building technology into the design of learning and assessment:
When designing learning in a digital environment, or supporting others in doing so, your journey has to start with a clear understanding of where you are now, and what you want to happen.
In order to justify any changes, or to build on current successes, you will need a reliable evidence base.
In this section, we help you consider:
- Who your learners are, what technology they currently use and for what purposes
- How you gather and utilise information generated by your students
- How well you enable their voice to be heard
- The digital capabilities of your students
- How well your quality processes are responding to learning and teaching in a digital age
