Michelle Moore – My Learning Consultants
All too often, course design begins with content. Your go-to resource may be a textbook, a video, slide decks, or a favorite lesson. With the content in hand, you set out to build a course to match, wrapping things up with a nice assessment!
Have you ever considered beginning at the end? In this workshop, we’ll do just that! We’ll take a fresh look at one of your courses and reframe it with the end in mind. We’ll define meaningful learning goals, consider a variety of effective learning activities, before we figure out where your content fits into the mix. We’ll also discuss, of course, how to make all of this happen in Moodle.
