Rather pleased that I managed to attend the webinar today, which was informative. Some notes:

Before designing activities: look at learning and teaching needs educators want to address in their teaching practice

This can be useful for the forthcoming Moodle sessions we are going to run here in HLS soon, as it’s not merely ‘how-to’. It’s the more complex activities in Moodle we’re going to tackle.

Designing for active engagement in technology enhanced contexts

Helen Walmsley’s best practice models for elearning

Grainne Conole’s 7C’s of Learning Design

3E Framework (Edinburgh Napier University):

Enhance (minimum) – Extend (give students more responsibility) – Empower (authentic activities reflecting the prof. environment!)

Unfortunately I then got interrupted by someone storming into the office requesting help. But hopefully I’ll be able to find my way into the activities this week …
