A new ALT SIG (Special Interest Group) focusing on ABC has been proposed and is currently pending approval by ALT Trustees. The SIG will focus on ABC to provide a common framework to initiate discussion, but ABC is itself highly adaptable and localisable. It can also be used to supplement other approaches. Part of the remit of the SIG is to exchange ideas in the area of learning, beyond the ‘classic’ form of ABC.The SIG will discuss and share the pedagogic opportunities of learning design within the sector, investigate and research the key concerns such as transferring designs into activities in the learning environment, and provide an effective and sustainable mechanism of sharing best practice across the community at large. The SIG will also encourage inter-institutional collaboration and cooperation in this area. The main purpose of the group, therefore, is to share experiences between individuals of using ABC and similar structured learning design methodologies.
This session is an informal meet-up for anyone interested in this area and in the potential for an ALT SIG around the topic.
