Newsletter July 2021 - Methodology for training material in the platform will be constructed using “ABC learning design
ABC Learning Design is a high-energy, hands-on curriculum development workshop developed at UCL. In just 90 minutes teaching teams work together to create a visual ‘storyboard’. The storyboard is made up of pre-printed cards representing the type and sequence of learning activities (both online and offline) required to meet the module or programme learning outcomes.

Although originally designed for higher education, the ABC Learning Design methodology can be easily adapted to secondary, primary and kindergarten levels.
It builds on the six learning types concept from Prof Diana Laurillard’s model of how students learn (‘Conversational Framework: D. Laurillard, Teaching as a Design Science. Building Pedagogical Patterns for Learning and Technology, Routledge, 2012.’).
This is a model of the conditions necessary for learning to take place. Laurillard argues that learning requires cycles of communication to take place between teachers and learners, and learners and their peers, and that these are promoted by the combination of the six learning types.
