Derek Chirnside - teaching and learning case study - flexible learning support
How do you develop traditional models of teaching and learning into flexible learning modes of delivery? Derek Chirnside, a senior educational designer, sees that putting notes onto a Blackboard site may not achieve this. The key question Derek asks in assisting staff with flexible course design and delivery is why they want to do this.
"I’ll always start by asking about their experience and what they’ve been involved with. … my second question is quite a serious one; why do they want to do this? It’s an important question, because there are a range of drivers. Whatever they say determines the design of the course."
