A team-based approach to learning design #theta2015

Design Develop Implement – A team-based approach to learning design (abstract)
Deidre Seeto and Panos Vlachopoulos

DDI work with teams on learning design – collaborative approach to rapid program design development. Sessions followed by consultations, including preparation for after these sessions are concluded.

Sometimes through story-boarding come up with ideas that requires grants or faculty-partnership.

Case-study: Academic interested in flipping classroom. Came up with idea; wanted to explore feasibility, cost. DDI workshop helped a lot. Well-structured.

Case-study: Wanted to explore infolit design. Got to meet with staff and find out what they wanted to deliver to students. Didn’t realise until went through programme how much goes into designing usable modules. Got much that could pass to colleagues too.

Value of using external facilitators in it. Ongoing relationships important. Had to have a readiness interview – some not really ready. All about dialogue and tools fit for purpose. Practice underpinned by theory. People appreciated the space and time to really think and focus. And were very clear on outcomes; check on them later about their action plans.
