DESIGN

The design phase forms the foundation of the unit design process and requires careful planning to ensure alignment is achieved between learning and assessment activities and unit learning outcomes.

DESIGN FOR STUDENT ENGAGEMENT

The learning experience you design should promote active learning in order to enhance content acquisition, increase content retention and enable students to become deep learners. Encouraging active learning will help you and your students to achieve these objectives.

Here are a few ideas to consider when designing for student engagement:

  • Share an experience, include an image/video

  • Blog about an area of interest that is relevant to the course

  • Reflect at the end of each module about what has been learned and how gaps in knowledge might be addressed

  • Build or model objects/processes, which demonstrate concepts

  • Demonstrate skills by creating or producing an item; share an image or video and include a reflective piece.

  • Digital Futures offers a range of services to help you achieve this. Consider booking one of our Western One Stop Studios to develop quality video content, fast.

DESIGN FOR ASSESSMENT

Design for assessment in TEL environments can provide students with flexibility regarding when and where assessment activities can take place. Assessments can also be designed to be distinctively student-centred with scaffolded tasks and the provision of prompt feedback.

Here are a few ideas to consider when designing for assessment:

  • Share an experience, include an image/video

  • Blog about an area of interest that is relevant to the course

  • Reflect at the end of each module about what has been learned and how gaps in knowledge might be addressed

  • Build or model objects/processes, which demonstrate concepts

  • Demonstrate skills by creating or producing an item; share an image or video and include a reflective piece
