Course Planning 2020 21


Course Planning 2020-21

Course teams are advised to take a stepped approach to planning teaching and learning in 2020/21.
You should:
1. Articulate pedagogical requirements
2. Consider possible solutions and select appropriate tools
3. Engage with staff development and training in new pedagogies and in the use of the selected tools 

Step 1. Articulate Your Pedagogic Requirements

CLT have written a guidance document on Articulating Pedagogical Requirements. Below is a summary of the key points to consider. The extended document can be accessed here: Guidance document on Articulating Pedagogical Requirements - Updated May2020.

  • 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 ENVIRONMENTWhat requirements students have and how we will enable and empower all students to succeed.
The Course Development Principles for both Undergraduate and Postgraduatge students was updated in June 202 to reflect the impact Covid-19 on future course delivery.

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. 

Digital Tool Functionality (What can it do?) 

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].

Learning and Teaching Scenarios 

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


Step 3. Engage with staff development

Once you have thought about part 1 and 2, you will need to consider if you need more training or to seek support in the use of certain tools or approaches. 
There are a number of opportunities and ways for you to engage in staff development.
