This presentation is from a workshop run at the University of Dundee eLearning Symposium on 31 May 2013, co led with my colleague Annalisa Manca and three of our students, Elizabeth Ferris, Scott Kendall and Satoko Orihashi. The abstract for our session read:
With the growing use of technology in learning and 24/7 access to information, there is growing interest in ensuring students develop 21st-century learning skills such as enquiry, participation, creativity and digital literacy. One way of nurturing these skills in students is to involve them in developing learning resources. In the School of Medicine students have identified that student-led eLearning development can evolve lifelong learning skills and encourage interprofessional and collaborative working. Furthermore, creating learning resources and peer-led teaching activities not only demonstrate students’ understanding of the curriculum, but also helps them gain a deeper understanding of the subject material, as well as pedagogical skills.
