This unit is being phased out, no new enrolments are being taken.


This unit is designed to provide you with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the design and delivery of technology-enhanced learning and teaching.

You will explore current and emerging technologies used in teaching, and critically evaluate their pedagogical affordances. There will be a focus on designing learning activities and assessments that are enhanced by the utilisation of online technologies. The unit will examine quality guidelines for online learning in higher education and consider approaches to enacting them in your own practice. During the unit you will build a digital portfolio of work that demonstrates your understanding of and ability to deliver technology enhanced learning and teaching.

The intended learning outcomes are that on completion of this unit, you will be able to:

1.           Select technologies appropriate for your teaching context(s), and justify their use.

2.           Design learning activities and assessments that utilise online technologies to enhance student learning and experiences.
