As part of my own research to pass on to colleagues, I recently attended a Future Learn course “How to Teach Online” where this planning tool was demonstrated. I thought colleagues may find it to be of interest.
Learning Designer helps you plan different types of activities for your students. It allows you to organise a blend of online and face to face activity. These are called TLAs, or Teaching and Learning Activities. There are 6 different types to choose from
- Read, watch, listen
You can add resources such as links to videos and websites.
It produces a helpful pie chart showing the proportion of activities the students will experience.
You can download your plan as a word document or share it with a link.
Have a go with the Learning Designer Tool yourself at https://www.ucl.ac.uk/learning-designer/designer.php (Links to an external site.) The video below talks you through how to use it.
