The JISC Design Studio is a wiki-based resource which draws together a range of emerging and completed outputs from different JISC programmes and projects. As the name suggests, the resource is intended to be developmental – a constant work in progress – and provides a platform for surfacing JISC work through an open approach.
Some facts and figures…..
The resource was created under the auspices of the Curriculum Design and Delivery programmes as a way of sharing existing resources around this area – in particular the role technology plays in supporting learning and teaching practice - and providing a platform for open sharing and development of project outcomes and resources. The intention was that by sharing work in progress and therefore increased transparency around these programmes, we could raise awareness and engage wider communities, particularly curriculum teams, in the use and re-use of outputs.It has also provided a means for contextualising outputs in different ways e.g. through different themes such as Students as Agents of Change or by resource type such as Case Studies. At a programme level it has enabled an open synthesis approach where programme-level outcomes can be summarised more iteratively. Overall, the real benefits are that this approach surfaces JISC outputs in a more meaningful and accessible way.
The resource developed significantly so after 2 years we did a review to get feedback from users.72 people contributed to an in-depth review from across different sectors and a wide range of rolesPeople indicated they were using it for a range of purposes including staff development support, personal development, and to disseminate good practice.Overall the feedback was very positive with the most respondents saying they found the site useful and informative. There were of course useful pointers for improvements to make information more accessible and be clearer on the audience, all of which we have been and continue to address.
The users and audiences for the resource are wide ranging but this is essentially a learning and teaching resource aimed at course teams and individual practitioners, researchers, technologists etc. We know for example that some HE institutions are using it as a set of resources on their PGCert courses. But it is also a resource for projects in development for them to use to reference and build on previous JISC work. So it has an external role and a more internal programme role to encourage sharing between projects. We know from the review that it is used across different sectors. Although is has a traditional HE and HE in FE focus given the nature of JISC funding a number of the resource of transferable to other sectors as well.
What types of resources will you find here? The focus is very much on project resources in particular that outputs which others can reuse/repurpose and learn from. There are pages around key themes which contextualise and link to individual resources but the backbone of the resource are the project pages and ‘assets’. These include anything from online tools, case studies, models, learning designs, lessons learned etc which support learning and teaching.
How are we currently using the Design Studio?As the curriculum design and delivery work has completed the focus is on consolidating this body of resources although some projects will continue to build on these through the Embedding Benefits programme.We are also using in to share work in progress around the Assessment & Feedback and Digital Literacies programmes.
Here are some quotes from users as to the benefits they’ve seen in using the Design Studio.
