OLTC20001 - Design for Learning

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In Design for Learning, you will study learning design principles and processes within the context of tertiary and adult education. You will have the opportunity to critically analyse and reflect on evidence and/or experiences of a previous unit offering to inform ongoing curriculum improvements. On successful completion, you will have prepared a range of learning design artefacts that underpin a new, or redesigned unit of study. These artefacts will adhere to workplace quality and/or accreditation requirements and ultimately inform a unit profile and a Learning Management System presence. You may prepare these artefacts for a unit of your choosing.
