Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Critically analyse and appraise learner-centred approaches to the design and delivery of online learning.

Activities:
There will be a variety of online asynchronous activities (such as case study discussions, personal reflections, etc) during the teaching period. The participants are expected to complete the readings and activities in the LMS. These activities provide an opportunity to engage in an asynchronous discussion about the key concepts and learn from each other#s experiences. These activities will also develop confidence in the use of educational technologies. The assessments tasks, rubrics and feedback processes will also be discussed in the online discussion forums.

02. Design online assessments to achieve learning objectives, including formal and informal feedback processes for diverse learners.

Activities:
There will be a variety of online asynchronous activities (such as case study discussions, personal reflections, etc) during the teaching period. The participants are expected to complete the readings and activities in the LMS. These activities provide an opportunity to engage in an asynchronous discussion about the key concepts and learn from each other#s experiences. These activities will also develop confidence in the use of educational technologies. The assessments tasks, rubrics and feedback processes will also be discussed in the online discussion forums.

03. Apply adult learning concepts, theory and principles to the development of meaningful synchronous and asynchronous learning interactions to promote higher order learning.

Activities:
There will be a variety of online asynchronous activities (such as case study discussions, personal reflections, etc) during the teaching period. The participants are expected to complete the readings and activities in the LMS. These activities provide an opportunity to engage in an asynchronous discussion about the key concepts and learn from each other#s experiences. These activities will also develop confidence in the use of educational technologies. The assessments tasks, rubrics and feedback processes will also be discussed in the online discussion forums.

04. Apply online learning principles to the design, development and planned evaluation of an online subject or module.

Activities:
There will be a variety of online asynchronous activities (such as case study discussions, personal reflections, etc) during the teaching period. The participants are expected to complete the readings and activities in the LMS. These activities provide an opportunity to engage in an asynchronous discussion about the key concepts and learn from each other#s experiences. These activities will also develop confidence in the use of educational technologies. The assessments tasks, rubrics and feedback processes will also be discussed in the online discussion forums.

05. Integrate a scholarly approach to your online design principles and practice.

Activities:
There will be a variety of online asynchronous activities (such as case study discussions, personal reflections, etc) during the teaching period. The participants are expected to complete the readings and activities in the LMS. These activities provide an opportunity to engage in an asynchronous discussion about the key concepts and learn from each other#s experiences. These activities will also develop confidence in the use of educational technologies. The assessments tasks, rubrics and feedback processes will also be discussed in the online discussion forums.
