Digital Design – individual self study course

July 21, 2020 - July 30, 2021

The aim of this online course is to provide you with the digital design skills and knowledge to plan learning, assessment, units and programmes for flexible delivery next year. In the course you will:

  • Critically reflect on your experience of teaching online
  • Explore engaging and inclusive design for your context
  • Analyse how different technologies can support different types of learning, teaching and assessment
  • Apply principles of online design to your teaching, assessment, units and programmes

By the end you will have had the opportunity to design a sequence of online activities for a week of teaching, and will have the knowledge and skills to build a user-friendly course in Blackboard using a range of different tools and types of task.

What will we cover?

This course is a self-study resource, meaning that you can work through the course at your own pace, and in your own time, there are seven themes to work through:

  • Reflections on ‘aha’, ‘oh no’ and ‘so what’ moments
  • Designing for digital: translation or transformation
  • The big shift from me to you: interactive teaching
  • Research-rich learning – the digital way
  • Nurturing relationships: personal, social, educational
  • Designing for inclusion
  • Authentic learning and assessment

Full details about the course materials, structure, navigation, help and support are available on the course welcome page on Blackboard, which you can access after enrolling.
