Process for including real topics in this site
The topics that are copies of real topic sites from across the University are selected because they exemplify good practice or innovation. All topics are open access. We hope that this initiative will encourage collegiality and sharing of ideas which can readily be adopted or adapted across the University.
Process for inclusion
The Online Learning and Teaching team in the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT) manages this process. There are six steps:
1. Topic nominated for consideration in showcase; 2. Check OK with topic coordinator (if topic nominated by someone else); 3. CILT evaluate for inclusion based on criteria; 4. Copy site and remove student and staff activity ('clean up'); 5. Final copy approvals and publish; 6. Option to create video/audio file to add context value.
An annual review process will allow for elearning developments and topic innovations/updates.
Criteria for inclusion
- Good practice: Does it demonstrate exemplary online design (personal, structured, active, connective)? OR
- Innovation: Does it demonstrate a new approach, new technology, creativity or experimentation?
Topics in the collection will also be selected to achieve a balance across colleges, theoretical models etc.
For more information, or if you would like to nominate your topic, please contact a member of the Online Learning and Teaching team (Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching) and we will follow up with you.
