Session 308

Title: Applying quality eLearning design principles

Presenter: Ian Tobitt and Briar Ang – Learning Design and Development

Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: Many schools are experimenting with and transitioning to eLearning delivery using a variety of ICT tools and techniques in their classrooms and is considered essential to facilitate learning. However, teachers and school leaders need to maintain a clear focus on pedagogy and ask the questions: • Are they using best practice to deliver teaching and learning using this method? • How can they improve student participation and outcomes with eLearning? • Are students developing 21st century learning skills?  This workshop will challenge the notion that eLearning is all about self-directed learning activities and will highlight the importance of teacher involvement and peer interaction in the online learning experience. It will show that eLearning design is simply an extension of learning design principles that teachers use in their everyday practice.
