  • This full-day, hands-on workshop draws on the latest thinking on learning design (Conole, 2012, Designing for learning in an open world, New York: Springer). It comprises a series of activities that will be carried out individually or in small groups, which will enable participants to reflect, in different ways, on a learning design project of their own (either an existing course you want to improve, or a new course you want to design). The workshop will help participants develop a balanced variety of teaching activities to address the wide range of expectations of adult learners in the 21st century, and to reuse Open Educational Resources (OER) where appropriate.
  • Give them a few minutes to think about this if necessary.
  • Use icebreaker to form groups
  • !
  • Mention horrible MOOC that OU ran …
