How do we transform the future practice of digital learning?
The demand for innovative digital learning continues to grow rapidly. In this 2-week course, you’ll examine what online learning is, who needs it, who creates it and why.
From the perspective of ‘teaching as a design science’, you’ll explore the design theories and practices that are transforming the future of digital learning and digital literacy.
You’ll even get the opportunity to contribute your own knowledge to this emerging and exciting field of education.
Discover how digital technology is affecting e-learning
Discuss some of the most fascinating questions in the digital learning field, such as whether technology will make learning obsolete as it reshapes machine and human interaction.
You’ll think about the evolving role of education and investigate who is learning and why. Then you’ll discuss how technology is shaping e-learning in examples such as networked, mobile and social learning.
Understanding online teaching as a design science
There is an interesting intersection between learning and design, and you’ll discover the meaning of ‘teaching as a design science’. You’ll think about education as a service and educators as curators.
