The aim of CDIs are to enable teams to:

  • Effectively incorporate technologies to improve course/module design and delivery
  • Meet their students’/participants’ and university’s digital expectations.

We start with your challenges, analyse them collaboratively, break into smaller working groups to address elements of the challenges. and then bring them together with a clear action plan for next steps.

Who is this event for?

This event is for Programme Teams, Subject Co-ordinators, Module Leaders, Programme Leads, Academic Managers and DMELDs, who are planning, developing and supporting changes involving increased use of blended, online, distance or face-to-face technologies to enhance learning, digital capabilities and increase choice, access, opportunity and well-being for students and staff.

The event may also be of interest to PLSEs, PLQs, Academic Advisers and Student Support Co-ordinators, Academic Liaison Librarians, Careers Advisers,Quality Officers, OBIS team leaders, Business Partnership Managers.

Please share this information with colleagues who may be interested.
Through the Introduction to  CDIs, teams will identify

  • Where they are now in respect to Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL)?
  • Who their learners are and where they may be now in respect to TEL?
  • What would improve the learning experience?
  • What would be the next development step(s)?
  • Can we apply these immediately?
  • What support do you need to do this?
  • How and when might further CDIs help?
In advance of the session, you are invited to identify (provisionally) an item (programme or suite of programmes, module, short course, session, etc) on which you are working or planning to work, which seeks to make use of online opportunities to improve learning.
Participants will work in thematic, or programme groups with facilitators from OCSLD, Digital Services, Academic Liaison Librarians and Digital Media and Elearning Developers (DMELDs) to plan, and in some cases draft and implement online enhancements to programmes, modules or sessions.
