In the fourth episode of our online radio programmes – Jisc On Air – we are exploring how learning technologies can be used to support new ways of delivering curricula leading to benefits, efficiencies, enhancements and transformation.
The show highlights how colleges and universities are using technology to enable flexible and creative models of curriculum delivery. This work is not only adding value but also transforming the way in which the curriculum is delivered in different contexts.
Kim Catcheside introduces two different curriculum delivery projects, Making the New Diploma a Success, a learning portal for diploma students at Lewisham College, and eBioLabs, a set of integrated tools that help students prepare for laboratory classes at the University of Bristol.The show then explores their approaches and achievements, with a focus on some of the tangible benefits emerging from their activities.
Kim also speaks with Lisa Gray, a JISC programme manager, about what support students require to make more effective use of technology for their learning.
- The Design Studio is a dynamic, wiki-based toolkit which draws together a range of existing and emerging resources including guidance, lessons learnt, transformation stories, case studies and how-to guides, providing a valuable insight into the effective use of technology in curriculum design and delivery processes.
