Successful multi-campus subject design optimises equivalent and effective access, learning experiences and opportunities for students irrespective of their campus location, and supports efficiency of organisation & teaching across and on campuses
In essence, multi-campus teaching necessitates delivery in either a fully on-line or, as is more usual in laboratory based subjects, in a blended learning format. The Digital Strategy at La Trobe University, includes support for staff to design effective approaches to multi-campus teaching and greatly expands on preliminary work undertaken in the Faculty of Science, Technology and Engineering through its regional portfolio.
In this presentation from Blended Learning 2015, Associate Professor Katherine Legge, Project Manager La Trobe Learning and Teaching explores how the multi-campus strategy supports the academic teaching developer of a subject to revise the delivery of their subject in such a way that they;
- Consider pedagogical design through all stages of their students’ blended learning experience
- Shift their focus away from the tools (f2f and ICT) and toward the learning intent
- Develop a clear understanding of their new role in the learningteaching process
