Learning design overview

  1. 1. Learning Design(née Curriculum Business Models)
  2. 2. Aim To aid the qualification and module design process by providing a set of tools and information sets that support a student- activity based approach
  3. 3. Drivers for change• New technologies, pedagogies and flexible models of delivery are making the design and production of qualifications more complex, however there are no practical tools which support the development of cost effective, sustainable, interesting and engaging learning• A changing HE context means the university will need to be able to respond more quickly, more effectively and continue to deliver high levels of quality• There is no existing framework for validation (QA) and verification (QC) to assure ‘quality’ of pedagogical design and build• The process of module/ qualification design and specification is inconsistent across the CAUs and best practice is not well shared• Current design focus can often be centred on content and delivery rather than student experience
  4. 4. How LD supportscurriculum processes "I found the pictures/diagrams an especially helpful way of seeing the module [and] make me think about all sorts of aspects of the current module which I wouldnt havedone before (am sure I would probably have only thought about the academic content!)But seeing the assessment patterns, the different types of task we ask the students to engage with really made the module come to life and definitely presented it from a students point of view” Module Team Chair, 2011• Introduces a consistent, structured design, specification and review process to support the new approvals process• Provides a set of simple tools which help teams understand and design qualification and modules, and the relationships between them• Reveals the costs and performance outcomes of design decisions• Puts the learning journey at the heart of the design process• Enables the sharing of best practice• Supports faculty teams in choosing and integrating a range of media, technologies and pedagogies in OU offerings
  5. 5. ProductsCore design representations Support for design• Module Map • LD pack (Box 1&2)• Activity Planner • Software tools• Performance View • Website• Cost Effectiveness View • IET support process
  6. 6. LD in the Stage-gate processIncorporate Investment Governance Qualification Governance into unit Specification Production Case decision Life decision plan End Specification WithdrawalModels Learning Design ExemplarsBasic data ‘inherited’ by A student-activity based approach to design. LD High-qualification and modules tools provide graphical views on design and performing performance that can be scrutinised, discussed qualifications and shared. and modules From Qualification To Module design and design and specification specification Quality enhancement process
  7. 7. Development plan• January 2013 interim solution • Performance View • Learning Design pack • Improved Excel versions of tools • Module level website and support• May 2013 interim solution • “Pretty but unintegrated” • Enhanced online/Excel versions of Module Activity Profile and Module Map • Qualification level versions of Activity Profile, Module Map (Student Journey Planner) and Performance View • Agreed data solutions• Full solution • Integrated with Stage-gate and data solutions
