EDUC 7037NA - Online Learning, Design and Assessment

Ngee Ann Academy - Quadmester 1 - 2014

This course addresses how learning can be enhanced through online learning design, incorporating current research and development in scenario-based learning, online roleplay simulations and virtual classrooms. A learner-centred approach will explore participants' current understandings and practice and then build on that in an individualised, project-based learning model. Important considerations will include adapting assessment to suit the learning process in an online mode, surveying some potentially useful tools which encourage collaboration and groupwork through discussion boards, exemplars and rubrics, and evaluating the design and assessment of courses and programs with online components. Students will analyse and critique case studies of online learning in higher education as part of a process of developing their own project to implement or enhance online learning in their own educational practice.
