Course Planning 2020-21
Step 1. Articulate Your Pedagogic Requirements
- CURRICULUM: What students will be required to learn and how we will resource and assess this learning
- LEARNING ACTIVITIES : What students will be required to do and how we will ensure they can do, and are doing, it.
- LEARNING ENVIRONMENT : What requirements students have and how we will enable and empower all students to succeed.
Step 2. Consider possible solutions and select appropriate tools
When you have decided on the most appropriate approach to take (Step 1), you can then think about which tools are available to you and which combination of tools best suits your approach.
Below is the Digital Tool Functionality spreadsheet listing the main supported tools available at Leeds Beckett and their specific functionality.
You can use a combination of these tools to meet your needs. It is important that you talk to the rest of your course team to ensure a consistent student experience.
Here are a range of common learning and teaching scenarios. The most suitable tools to support these common scenarios and activities are outlined [to be updated Summer 2020].
- Live Lecturing with students
- Pre-recorded lectures for students
- Small group meetings with students
- One to one meetings with students
CLT and their Associates have produced a small number of short videos focused on approaches to blended and online delivery. These videos are aimed at introducing some simple ideas about delivering content both asynchronously and synchronously. If you are interested in using any of the tools mentioned please visit the MyBeckett guides or ITS knowledge base.
- Getting started with asynchronous delivery
- Introducing a module to students on MyBeckett
- How to use discussion boards with students on MyBeckett
- Engaging content using gamification: Escape rooms and Cluedo
- Using a journal to support reflective practice
- Ideas for structuring a module and embedding a wide range of digital tools and skills
