Abstract

New lecturers, part-time teachers and graduate teaching assistants are often required to both deliver an existing course and design their own teaching based on a module description. But where do they start? Underpinned by sound theory, Designing Learning is a practical guide that aims to help busy professionals design, develop and deliver a course, from module outline to effective teaching. Illustrated with useful checklists and action points, this book covers the essentials of designing learning: ■ supporting and promoting student learning ■ matching content to outcomes ■ selecting effective teaching and learning methods ■ assessment that supports and promotes learning and provides feedback ■ learning materials and resources for diverse learners ■ C&IT tools and how to use them best ■ creating an inclusive learning environment ■ managing and evaluating your course ■ quality enhancement and assurance processes. Guided by principles of good practice and reflecting the educational research that underpins them, this book is essential reading for anyone new to teaching in higher education.
