EMPOWER webinar week on short learning programmes: Design and expanding HE horizons

  1. 1. Marcelo Maina, Lourdes Guàrdia, Sandrine Albert {mmaina, lguardia, salbert0} Short Learning Programmes design: expanding HE horizons
  2. 2. The E-SLP project’s objective Set up a framework for recognised and accredited European Short Learning Programmes Empower university leadership and staff for curriculum and course design, quality assurance and recognition for SLPs complying with the EQF Develop guidelines for collaborative SLPs and related (virtual) mobility, enriching the content and quality of SLPs.
  3. 3. SLP Characteristics
  4. 4. Process Step 2 D.4.1 COMPENDIUM OF GOOD PRACTICES Identifying and analysing patterns of good practices and potential progresses in existing SLPs Step 3 D4.2 DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR FLEXIBLE AND SCALABLE SLPS converting patterns of good practices into a practical guide with templates to design SLPs Step 1 BENCHMARKING Establishing a framework for innovative curricula and courses design for SLPs (survey and interviews)
  5. 5. Compendium of good practices E-SLP
  6. 6. “Compendium of good practices” - METHODOLOGY Presents a set of patterns of good practices in SLPs and LBBs design as examples that inspire the development of new programmes. Literature Review “Quality Assessment for E- learning: a Benchmarking Approach (EADTU, 2007)s)” “Curriculum Design in Higher Education: Theory to Practice (O’Neill, 2015)” “JISC the Design Studio” toolkit Survey ➔ 22 SLPs ➔ 12 partner universities ➔ over 80 questions: ◆ Programme design (Educational philosophy, learning and teaching strategies, learning interactions, technical parameters) ◆ Learning Building Blocks design (instructional engineering, academic, parameters, learners and technical parameters) In-depth interviews of the most relevant SLPs ➔ Learners’ characteristics ➔ Core educational values ➔ Delivery model (online / blended) ➔ Relation to full degree programmes ➔ Programme teaching and learning strategies ➔ Programme Organisation and Structure ➔ Support to students and staff ➔ Programme assessment and feedback strategies ➔ Independent certification ➔ Monitoring and evaluation

  14. 14. “Compendium of good practices” - Results: Progress needed FLEXIBILITY / SCALABILITY ➔ Relation to full degree programme ➔ Non-stop enrollment ➔ Asynchronous ➔ Massive audience ➔ Scalability for blended learning SLPs ALIGNMENT WITH SOCIETY / MARKET NEEDS ➔ Generalisation of society and market evolution input ➔ Vulgarisation of contact with key actors INNOVATIVE TEACHING APPROACHES ➔ Focus on active learning ➔ Authentic learning ➔ Collaborative learning ➔ Role playing / associational brainstorming, simulations INNOVATIVE DESIGN ➔ Alignment between assessment, competences, learning outcomes and activities ➔ Peer assessment ➔ Inclusion of non-formal learning CERTIFICATION ➔ Alignment of recognition across European countries ➔ Systematisation of consideration of EQF
  15. 15. “Compendium of good practices” - STRUCTURE Part 1 presents the practices carried within E-SLP consortium, divided into 4 main areas of interest : ➔ target group; ➔ flexibility and scalability; ➔ accessibility ➔ and Innovation. Part 2 provides an in depth exploration of the good practices of each SLP. List of each SLP with analysis of characteristics that fit the project’s main 8 criteria
  16. 16. Design Guidelines for Flexible and Scalable SLPs E-SLP
  17. 17. “Design Guidelines for Flexible and Scalable SLPs” - METHODOLOGY Aim: Assist in the design and development of SLPs by providing a technical hand-on guide. Academic Reference on Programme Design “Compendium of Good Practices” Project Deliverables Survey on actual practices (5 SLPs pilot) in a V2 Sources Overview of design practices of best fitting examples of existing SLPs Progress needed for SLPs to fit the E-SLP criteria Institutional Policies (WP3) SLPs Recognition (WP5) SLPs Concept (WP2)
  18. 18. Noteworthy elements of the “Design Guidelines for Flexible and Scalable SLPs” Templates in many sections Self-assessment tool for existing SLPs to make sure the fit the E-SLP criteria Stakeholders tags on each section for easy use: Programme directors, Management staff, Educational staff, Lecturers and professors

  24. 24. “Design Guidelines for Flexible and Scalable SLPs” - Looking at co-design processes Short learning Programmes can be designed following 2 principles: ➔ primary design (each LBB is designed for the SLP) or ➔ puzzle design (pre-existing LLBs used to design a SLP) The survey results on actual practices in the project’s pilots revealed that 3 design processes were possible: ➔ coordinated (each partner does their own design), ➔ cooperative (partners can share some steps of the design and implementation but not all) and ➔ collaborative (all partners share the design and implementation)
  25. 25. “Design Guidelines for Flexible and Scalable SLPs” - 10 TEMPLATES - Assessment Template for existing SLPs (to check if your SLP fits the E-SLP project criteria with links to relevant parts of the guidelines to make necessary changes it to match the project criteria) - Brief Design (to identify all main parameters that will be taken into account: constraints, means, needs, etc.) - Macro Design (to set the outline and aims) - Persona Card (to draft learner type(s) for each target group) - Competence (to identify and draft the competences to be developed) - Correspondence (to guide a brainstorming session at beginning of the macro design process and work on throughout the design Competences, Learning Outcomes, Activities, Assessments, Platform and tools) - Pilot survey (to co-design a SLP) - Implementation (to check parameters before the implementation phase) - Inter-institutional implementation (to check parameters before the implementation phase) - Alignment (to check the alignment of learning outcomes, activities and assessment)
