Course design/ learning design

Our instructional designers and educational technologists are able to assist academics in the effective use of a wide range of technologies in their teaching practices. We offer support in course design based on learning design principles. Learning Design implies the design of learning activities or experiences. Rather than focusing on technology a learning design process focuses on learners and their needs. Individual sessions can be arranged with us to talk about your course, your learners, the specific challenges you would like to address and to find the right tools or technologies for you to respond to those challenges. We also offer support in the design and development of digital course materials.
