Duration 2 hours
Team Researcher Academy

The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. 

Target Audience:
Post Graduate Students, Professional and Teaching staff wanting to develop and explore blended learning design and delivery.

Description: Have you wondered what teaching and learning in Higher Education (HE) might look like in the future? For many universities, the answer lies in a blended learning model using platforms such as Moodle and Microsoft Teams, in which academics combine synchronous teaching on campus (or online) with asynchronous learning delivered online.

This course aims to explore some of the key definitions, concepts and frameworks shaping approaches to effective blended learning design as well as inviting you to create your own blended learning exemplar. By so doing, this course aims to provide you with a body of knowledge and skills that will stand you in good stead, especially if you are actively considering an academic career or are already working in Higher Education.

Process: Online Moodle course Days 1 to 5 with anticipated 2 hours of engagement each day (Monday to Friday) The link for the Moodle resource will be sent on the Friday preceding course commencement.
