Create your module

Welcome to “Create your module” the second of several Learning X series that we’ll be launching during the course of 20-21 support the transition to blended learning. This supplements the earlier “Blend your Module”, and like it, is aimed at anyone involved with teaching – whether you’re a programme lead, convening several modules, or part time tutor teaching just one class.
It also runs alongside the Ultra 101 sessions, designed to help you get to grips with the technology.

The posts will broadly cover the key sections of the module framework

  • Getting the module framework to work for you (sections 1, 2 & 3)
  • Communication and Interaction (section 4)
  • Assessment (section 5)
  • Learning materials and Resources (section 6)
  • Active and Social Learning (section 7)

Aspects such as Accessibility, Legal issues and QA (sections 8 & 9) will be covered throughout.
