Activity

  • @Oliver: thanks for your feedback on the session. The technical skills need to be built into the activity design and recognised (through workload planning and support) as a component of the student work that is being undertaken and a development area, in combination with the conceptual learning that is being addressed. The success of the Heritage Practice module was due to both technical and academic dimensions of the project work being addressed in this way, as described in the case study: https://elearningyork.wordpress.com/learning-design-and-development/case-studies/lights-camera-heritage/ with support put in place for students who were new to video development.
    As we suggested in the session, there are cases where this is not handled so well, and indeed the rationale for the content development activity is not conveyed convincingly to students and this can lead to push-back and frustration over the task design and the workload involved.
