Learning design for hybrid teaching

A set of new resources to support learning design for hybrid teaching has been developed by Learning, Teaching & Web Directorate in partnership with learning technologists from all three Colleges.

The resources use the ABC learning design framework, developed at UCL, and give colleagues a flexible range of options ahead of Semester 1. They enable course teams to redesign for both digital and on campus teaching modes, and respond to the challenge of education in a physically distanced but digitally connected world.

ABC toolkits enable teaching colleagues to quickly reconfigure existing courses to enable a move to hybrid teaching.  The toolkit provides hybrid ‘micro patterns’ for learning activities (e.g. lectures, field work) as well as ‘macro patterns’ for mapping course structure to a corresponding structure for the associated course on Learn.  The hybrid ‘patterns’ have been designed to integrate with Learn via the Learn Foundations approach. 

The support being offered also includes workshops on how to fundamentally reimagine courses using the ABC framework.

Macro and micro patterns of activities
An element in a macro pattern for a course, such as a lecture, can be broken into a micro pattern (such as recorded video presentation/live Q&A and asynchronous discussion)
