Educational Design Portfolio – Course Design

I have specialised in the design of online courses.  By online courses here I mean heavily blended or fully distance learning courses. This activity ranges from contributing to the QA procedures involved in getting a course into module specifications through to learning design and module building. This has included:

MSc Environmental Health

The MSc Environmental Health launched in 2016. Within the programme we endeavoured to embed as much interactive media as possible to bring content to life. The challenge was enabling professional and skills based learning at a distance. So an active component was present in each module; be it through group work, reflective work or interactive presentations. This unfortunately cannot be displayed below due to data protection concerns.  Below are some screenshots of the programme and module pages.

PG Dip in Science Communication

Through the use of short courses aimed at the CPD market the Faculty of HAS has tip toed towards a fully online Diploma in Science Communication. This was a great way to provide proof of concept and manage the risk of going to market. The design on this course was done in a team environment and I love the structure of the courses. As they are peppered with activities and branded content that together meet the learning objectives and create a really good product. Due to the amount of social learning spaces it is not that informative to too many display pictures of the course for your perusal but here accompanying some screenshots here is the poster I presented to the UWE teaching and learning conference.
