The Flipped Classroom
I just completed again this module on Flipped Learning as I will be discussing the approach on Friday with a group of FE and HE colleagues. <br /> <br /> Adopting a more active learning approach in our face-to-face sessions makes so much sense. The module is effective in clarifying how the cognitive domain of learning could be prepared by the learners prior to the delivery, and how to fully exploit dynamic in-class activities with a focus on the affective and psychomotor domain learning.

Influencing and promoting policy for equitable access
Some excellent guidance on how the Teaching and Learning Strategy should give clear guidance on how learning technologies deliver accessibility & inclusion. The three strategies: Teaching and Learning, Digital and Accessibility & Inclusion should also be aligned to promote equitable access.

Accommodating the learner's digital context
The module helps me to reflect on the design choices I can make - as an educator, to meet the challenging digital contexts of my learners.
Creating inclusive content: Practice
So important for us, educators, to use a wide range of media as teaching material, and not just lots of text. Cognitive overload will confuse learners. This module is a good reminder for us to pace and “scaffold learning with cues, clues and context.”
Equitable access to digital technologies
Equitable access is such an important consideration for educators. This module reminds us just this - when access is not equitable, we must ask ourselves “How do I teach this best with what I’ve got?”. Digital divide and exclusion is not a myth. Let’s make sure we support learners in developing the essential digital skills they need to work and live in a digital global society. Our remit as educators is to inspire growth and prepare learners to become independent thinkers ready for the world of work as best as we can within the constraints of the learning environment.
