Learning design is particularly useful in blended and online learning
The UNSW Graduate Capabilities specify that UNSW students are to be "digitally literate". Integrating technology into learning and teaching is essential to developing this literacy.
Learning design is particularly useful in blended and online learning. You can map activities and assessments to a wide range of online tools that teachers and students will use, as well as to the defined learning outcomes of a course or program.
See the eLearning (TELT) section of this website for information on:
- The pros and cons of online and blended learning
- How you might use technologies effectively, and
- Useful resources for considering, designing and evaluating online teaching and learning activities and resources.
