Blend your module

Welcome to “Blend your module” the first of several Learning X series that we’ll be launching over the summer to support the transition to blended learning in 20/21. This is aimed at anyone involved with teaching – whether you’re a programme lead, convening several modules, or part time tutor teaching just one class. 

Over the course of the next 7 days (towards the end of the day) we’ll be releasing a series of posts to help you start thinking about how you can redesign your module to support blended learning. As the posts are published, you’ll see a direct link to them below.

In addition, we’d like to welcome you to two Live sessions, an informal chat about how you’re getting on so far. These will both take part in My Dundee – in the Staff eLearning Resources Organisation – the same Collaborate Room we use for the drop ins. (External people – drop us an email and we’ll send you a guest link)
