We aim to support the course design process to incorporate technology effectively from the outset.
A clear finding from many of the most successful uses of technology in curriculum delivery in recent years is that those which make a real difference tend to have been designed into the course from the start rather than added as an afterthought. Thus, whilst many of the technology developments being made by the project this year are being piloted within existing programmes, we also wanted to work with new programmes that are currently being designed for launch in autumn 2010.
Current state of progress
Our work in this area is dictated by the timing of new course proposals. We have worked with several course teams through this process and are currently developing a moodle with best practice examples from the department and links to course design tools such as Phoebe.
