It is built on curriculum design research from the JISC / University of Ulster (Viewpoints) and work of Prof Diana Laurillard (learning types)

In this intensive 90-minute session, an academic team work together to create a complete storyboard, including a detailed sequence of learning activities and their assessment.
In order that ABC workshops can continue to be run, we have developed an online version, which will also support the design of courses suitable for hybrid teaching.
