  2. 2. About the Project Background <ul><li>Similar elearning work in England whereas we are focussing on Scottish perspective </li></ul><ul><li>Relevant, scottish material/perspective. Localised. </li></ul><ul><li>Small ‘reference group’ of subject experts needed to steer the project – who are committed to being involved. </li></ul><ul><li>Testing out misconceptions and assumptions. </li></ul>
  3. 3. About the Project Approach <ul><li>To create 3 learning objects, possibly 4, focussing on BME subject material. </li></ul><ul><li>Engaging, stimulating, interactive. </li></ul><ul><li>Product will use existing tried and tested RLO template. </li></ul><ul><li>Products can be designed in-house or by external supplier ( Screenmedia ) </li></ul><ul><li>Best practice (accessibility/usability) </li></ul><ul><li>Learning objects need to be ‘front loaded’ with very nearly all of the content in place at the beginning of the technology process. </li></ul><ul><li>Can make small alterations during process, but not helpful to have things coming in half way through. </li></ul>

About the Learning Exchange: Learning Objects <ul><li>What are the advantages of learning objects? </li></ul><ul><li>They may be: </li></ul><ul><li>Easily updated without changing a whole course </li></ul><ul><li>Designed to be used on a range of platforms </li></ul><ul><li>Cost effective and efficient to produce </li></ul><ul><li>Easily adapted to meet the requirements of local curricula </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to blend with other resources, digital or traditional </li></ul>
  6. 6. Types of Learning Objects <ul><li>Case-based </li></ul><ul><ul><li>provide a focus for student learning in relation to real world case situations such as an interagency dilemma, or a family case study. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Conceptual </li></ul><ul><ul><li>explain and illustrate key ideas such as ‘resilience’ in child care, or ‘risk’ in relation to work with offenders. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Interactions </li></ul><ul><li>Hybrid </li></ul><ul><li>Repurposed (HTML) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Using existing resources (powerpoints, word docs, handouts) and adapting them to be delivered electronically. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Learning Objects: Resources pool <ul><li>Strathclyde university’s in house design and production team </li></ul><ul><li>Currently working with Learning Exchange in production of RLOs </li></ul><ul><li>A creative production company based in Glasgow. </li></ul><ul><li>Currently working with Learning Exchange in production of RLOs </li></ul>

  9. 9. Conceptual RLO suggestions <ul><li>Conceptual RLO suggestions </li></ul><ul><li>A large RLO made up of component parts which are designed to bolt together or disaggregate into standalone learning objects? </li></ul><ul><li>The RLO would attempt to describe and invite exploration of the following themes: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Discrimination </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Equality </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Stereotyping </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Inclusion </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Anti-racist practice </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Activities and group exercises can reinforce concepts. </li></ul>

For example, an elderly Asian lady suffering from acute Dementia needs to be taken into care. The storyline can explore the various issues surrounding her situation, and the various points of view, her own, her family’s, her care worker’s, her neighbour’s. </li></ul><ul><li>How can a social worker, for example, better relate to a service user from a different ethnic background, and help to support and maintain their beliefs and customs? </li></ul>

  13. 13.
