- find out what colleagues in other organisation's in the sector are doing in their teaching.
- share, adapt and adopt good practice and learning objects and resources more...
Digital technologies have a particular value in their ability to be shared over distance and then viewed and worked on at different times.
This allows content and resources to be adapted, improved, questioned, have examples added, have gaps and other incompletions filled, and so on, completed...
The internet is full of information and it’s not all accurate. This module looks at the different types of error to be found, from unintended to deliberately misleading and how to prepare learners to recognise and deal with them.
The way students learn and the skills they need to progress are the same used in class, but they offer new challenges to get the best from the options they present. How learners meet those challenges at the start of a programme and what help is provided for improvement requires thought in initial...
The diversity of learners extends to differences in their levels of digital skills, experience and confidence.
This module looks at ways to ensure that our teaching does not disadvantage those with existing low levels of digital skills.
A recorded teaching session can provide real opportunities for improving your teaching practice, especially if you share it with colleagues in a quality circle or improvement group where you all watch each other's recordings to review and reflect upon them.
This module looks at some of...
This module looks at how you can lead the collaborative creation of complex content covering a number of subject areas and involving several colleagues.
It follows on from two preceding modules:
- Creating content: adapting and editing.
- Creating content: combining and mixing.
Teaching and learning quality policies often refer to the importance of high-quality resources and content. But what does that mean and who should judge it?
This module looks at the issues involved in making these decisions.
EdTech enables us to deliver scenarios online and bring them to life through the application of technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) role playing and games formats. This module looks at how to create authentic scenarios and apply them to effective learning.
Teachers can achieve better outcomes by imaginative re-use, recycling and repurposing of existing content – whether it be their own, their colleagues', or resources and materials found on the internet. It also looks at the role and importance of organisations in creating and promoting...
This module looks at how to combine and mix existing resources to create more relevent content for learning.

This module looks at what is meant by future-proofing content, why it is necessary and why it is increasingly important.
The principles and practice of future-proofing content together with some simple techniques are examined in the paired module Principles and practice of future proofing...
This module looks at adapting and editing existing learning materials, your own or resources you found online, for a different learning purpose.
Creating new resources from old can extend the life of learning materials and is a time-efficient approach to meeting the needs of different learners.
This module looks at a systematic approach to assessing the reliability and validity of information that is likely to end up embedded in learning resources and teaching practice.
This module looks at how to overcome or find ways around some of the technical compatibility issues you can encounter when searching for resources on the web to use with learners.
The web is awash with sources of information and resources to support teaching and learning.
This module looks at ways to organise your search practice.
