Weekly summary and what's next

Summary and reflection

In the first week of the course you were introduced to some models of learning design which can you be used to provide structure and meaning to a design problem.

Summary and reflection

In this first week we started by looking at what is design and some of the frameworks which influence course design in higher education

It is wonderful to see so many learners from around the world participating in the course. Padlet is a great tool to use for an icebreaker when starting a new course, even with a face-to-face class.

Many of you shared technologies you have integrated in your courses to support learning. If you are unsure of what technology to use when, the UNSW Teaching Technology Toolkit website includes a decision tree tool to assist teachers in choosing the right tool for the best learning.

Nalini Pather’s recommendation on designing a course through incremental changes, resonated with many of you. Seeking student feedback as these changes are progressively made will also inform changes to the course.

What’s Next?

In Week 2, Models, methods and tools for educational design, we will explore blended and flipped classroom models and hear from UNSW academics of their own experiences. We will also consider the key to designing good assessment, and how it aligns to program and course learning outcomes.
