ABC is built on University of Ulster’s “Viewpoints” approach and based on Diana Laurillard’s notion of six “learning types” from her well-established Conversational Framework.
Building on this positive experience our digital education team successfully bid to the HEFCE Catalyst Fund. The Action for Curriculum Enhancement (ACE) will evaluate ABC via case studies and importantly develop a curriculum development pack to be made available to all HEIs. The presentation will update progress and invite all colleagues interested in improving programme design to engage with this highly transferable method, download our resources and contribute to the ACE/ABC initiative.
