Brunel and Reading Universities present at the Alt C 2011

Natalie Parnis, Dr Phil Alberts (Brunel University) and Maria Papefthimiou (Reading University) delivered a collaborative presentation during this year’s Alt C Conference in September.  The presentation entitled Curriculum Design: An approach for successfully embedding Technology Enhanced Learning in the curriculum provided the audience with an account of the commonalities and variances of the learning design initiatives and approaches as implemented in the two institutions.  The presenters also gave a description of the positive impact these approaches had on the institutions’ teaching process.   The observed benefits were improved stakeholder engagement, stronger collaboration within course design teams, and increased opportunity for creativity and innovative design approaches.

The presentation was well attended and questions were raised by the members from the audience about the sustainability of these initiatives and plans for embedding such initiatives into institutional processes.  More details about both partner institutions’ sustainability plans will be included in their final project report which will be finalised soon.
