It gives us great pleasure to announce our next event: the Learning Design Workshop which will be led by Professor Grainne Conole, Director of the Institute of Learning Innovation at University of Leicester, United Kingdom and supported by Jolanda Morkel, Senior Lecturer in Architecture at Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa. This four week online workshop will run from 22 April to 16 May, with a short break midway.
The main objective of the workshop is to support participants to prepare courses for online and mobile environments. Participants will work in small groups (max 4) and should have a course in mind. This provides an excellent opportunity to work with colleagues in your own institution or across institutions to design or redesign a course together. Group members will engage with a range of learning design conceptual tools in collaborative environments (e.g. Google Drive) and share insights and learning with other groups in a closed Facebook group. There will be two live online meetings for Q&A, sharing and discussions.
The workshop will be supports participants in exploring the the 7Cs of learning design framework for blended and online course creation. This framework was developed at University of Leicester and the Open University in the UK.
