Initial feedback on the assessment strategy and blueprint
A new design blueprint replaces the previous one, based on a simplification of the original one that allows for repetitive patterns of activities. The idea is to minimize confusion as the independent learner is assumed.
- Tool types are left generic so that the content can be exported or pulled into any of many different types of environments.
- The course can be undertaken entirely by self-study although options are also provided for peer work if such an environment is available.
- Formative assessments are provided where possible (self-marking quizzes, peer feedback)
- Summative assessments are undertaken by means of a portfolio, as well as a final essay or exam
