The new online resource is an output of the Advance HE Scottish National Priority Plan and includes a series of case study videos and other resources to support colleagues who are considering designing and embedding technology-enhanced learning methods into both face-to-face and online courses to support active student learning.
Highlights include a student perspective from the Vice President (Education) of the Students’ Representative Council at the University of Glasgow, as well as senior managers and educators presenting their reflections and aspirations for technology-enhanced learning at Glasgow.
The international perspective is explored by colleagues from Arizona State University in the United States who showcase how they have used adaptive courseware to provide a personalised pathway through a course for each student – an approach known as Adaptive Learning.
The Advance HE Scotland Thematic Series focuses on specific learning and teaching themes. It brings together existing select Advance HE and external resources, and sources new case studies of practice. Topics are identified by the Scottish sector, and resources are authored and curated by colleagues from Scottish institutions with the aim to guide practitioners to relevant material and experiences to support them in developing their own teaching practice.
The Thematic Series exists to strengthen core academic capabilities of staff through the sharing of effective practice and focused theory, and to support institutional enhancement of learning and teaching, complementing and further building on their existing in-house work.
Other instalments in the Thematic Series resources (outputs of the Advance HE Scottish National Priority Programme) include:
