Event Description

Full Description:
This workshop describes the process undertaken to redesign a course to meet the demands arising from many sources; students were very dissatisfied with previous versions, accreditation bodies had radically revised their requirements, and staff were keen to implement their new research findings in the area.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the theoretical underpinnings of the design process, in particular Constructive Alignment (Biggs, 2014). A framework was adapted from a recent research literature review in the field (Faragher, Hill & Clarke, 2016).

One challenge was to design teaching materials to ensure students were able to access the expertise of staff who were not assigned to the teaching team. This has been achieved using panels of experts with guest lectures and then follow up video presentations used as learning objects.

Participants in the workshop will be:
- Invited to consider a learning outcome for one of their courses and to align assessment tasks and teaching activities to practice Constructive Alignment
- Shown how to caption a video, using YouTube functions
- Provided information on strategies for gaining feedback from students.
