GTAs: New blended learning design and delivery resource available

The Programme Design and Learning Technology and Academic Practice teams have updated their support for integrating in-person and online teaching and learning.

TheĀ Blended Learning Design and Delivery resource is available on the VLE. GTAs on contracts should be able to self-enrol. If you find you are unable to do so then please submit a request to access the site.

The design sections of the site focus on combining in-person and online modes of delivery to best effect. They also offer support with planning assessment and evaluation of blended learning modules.

The teaching/facilitation section focuses on supporting inclusive learning communities and groups and planning and facilitating synchronous and asynchronous learning activities in-person and online.

Supported by examples, the site is targeted at module leaders and all staff who teach or support student learning, including Graduate Teaching Assistants.

There will also be summer webinars on aspects of designing and delivering blended learning. These will include the following themes:

  • Inclusive learning and teaching
  • Blended learning module design
  • Weaving in-person and online learning activities
  • Student engagement in synchronous and asynchronous online learning
  • Time-Limited Take-Home Exams
  • Evaluating blended learning
