  3. 3. What CBM is delivering• Simple tools for articulating/visualising/sharing module designs• Putting the learning journey at the heart of the design process• Revealing the costs and performance outcomes of design decisions• Introducing a common classification framework and terminology• Introducing a consistent, structured design, specification and review process to support the new approvals process 3
  4. 4. CBM and strategy• PVC-LTQ expectations of CBM (use in CAUs/units): – use the CBM activity planner & module map to support student learning focus for decision making & module design – Use performance view to inform quality assurance and enhancement decisions – Use CBM data and planning to inform faculty planning and resource allocation – Develop current CBM to apply at level of Qualifications• Use it to define templates?• Use it to drive efficiency? 4
  5. 5. Four key views Module Map Activity Planner 5 Cost Effectiveness view Module Performance view
  6. 6. Module design process 1Intentions What will students do? What inputs and outputs will be needed? Pedagogy profile Activity planner Module map Module map
  7. 7. Module design process 2 What options are there? How much will it cost? What are we assembling? Module options guidance Costing and modelling tool Module specification
  8. 8. Module review process……9 months later What did we produce? What did it cost? How was study time spent? How did the module perform? Module specification Costing and Activity planner Course performance modelling tool summary Available to other module teams through a CBM library
  9. 9. Exploring provision at different levels
  10. 10. What we can do with CBM• Provide standard tools for supporting course design process• Establish faculty norms/models in a consistent way• Share successful designs• Encourage new models – more cost-effective – more flexible and sustainable – more interesting and engaging for students• Articulate designs more clearly to students 10
  11. 11. Activity Planner• What are we asking students to do• Pedagogy neutral• 6 categories: 11

  20. 20. We’re all researchers now?• As content becomes adundant focus is less on providing it than on creating a framework to make sense of it• Leads to research-based pedagogy?

  29. 29. Some thoughts• Good way to form a common early rep• Diff ways of representing same content• Categorisation encourages variety• Categories can be bit blurred• Role of assessment?
  30. 30. Issues• Categories• Variability• Implication that assimilative is ‘wrong’• Level of detail and moment of implementation• Being told what to do• Capturing the narrative/journey
  31. 31. Further development• Nice paper version• Guidance• Excel• Online interactive version with database• IET liaison• Work with other projects
  32. 32. AA308• Looking at online material• Quickish view, may miss some subtlety• Raised some questions which might be useful for new course team 32
  33. 33. Some questions to consider1. What are the dis/advantages for the student of engaging with the optional components of the module?2. Is it ok for students to be able to complete this level 3 module without engaging in dialogue with anyone else about their learning?3. Students are asked key questions to help them internalise the concepts but are immediately followed by the answer.4. What do the module team see as the pedagogical purpose of the forums?5. Information literacy skills may not meet level 3 (see Is this important to the module team ?6. Would a more varied activity profile be desirable? 33
  34. 34. Activity• In groups of 4• 10 pt General Digital skills for English/Philosophy students course (10 wks)3.Determine key topics (10 mins)4.Use activity planner to sketch out activity (10-20 mins)5.Use Module Map to create representation (10-20 mins)6.Feedback & discussion (20 mins)
