Learning Technologies 1: Technology-Enhanced Learning
This module will give you a broad overview of technologies, their associated characteristics and the ways in which they can be used to foster different pedagogical approaches across different learning contexts. You will gain experience of a range of technologies, experiment with them and critique their relevance to practice, as well as consider the implications for learning, teaching and research. You will be provided with opportunities to communicate and collaborate with peers through various technologies. Where appropriate, you will benefit from the expertise of the international community via podcasts/videocasts and audio or video conferencing sessions. You will have the opportunity to create your own learning artefacts using different tools and you will be encouraged to become part of the broader TEL community (e.g., Association of Learning Technology, European Distance and E-learning Network).
Learning Technologies 2: Learning Design for the 21st Century
This module introduces you to new learning design methodology which guides practitioners in making informed, explicit choices about which technologies can support different forms of learning. You will study through a series of synchronous and asynchronous activities and you will work both independently and, where relevant, in collaborative groups. You will be exposed to the latest research in (and materials on) learning design, drawing in particular on research from Europe and Australia.
You will have the opportunity to explore a range of learning design visualisation and pedagogical planner tools to create your own learning design materials. A range of social networking sites will be used for you to share and discuss your learning materials.
