Wednesday 16 December 12:00 - 13:00 

UCL Arena Centre and UCL Digital Education are delivering this session, which is open to all staff at UCL who teach students.

We'll look at how you should use the basic principles of learning design to align content and activities to learning outcomes and the translation of a typical, 60-minute lecture for an online context.

We will consider the strengths of video, how to 'chunk' content clearly, the kinds of generative and active learning tasks you might intersperse between such chunks, and some basic principles of accessibility and usability. Session participants will be given a chunking template to work with and discuss potential activities with their peers.
