Day 1: Motivating and engaging students

Motivation and learning are inseparable – if a student is not motivated, they will find it difficult to learn. Once we start thinking like a student, we can identify the factors that are likely to engage and motivate students.

In this module, we will explore the relationship between motivation and learning. You will create learner personas to help you empathise with your students and identify ways to engage them in the curriculum.


Day 2: Creating effective assessments

Effective assessment requires clear learning outcomes. Clear learning outcomes show you what you need to teach, and show your learners what they need to learn to pass.

In this module, we will examine common problems with learning outcomes. You’ll learn how to write learning outcomes that improve assessment and how to design assessments that deliver the learning outcomes.


Day 3: Designing inclusive learning experiences

We are all different, and neurodiversity means we all experience the world in different ways. In a classroom, every learner has different needs and challenges. The teacher’s role is to anticipate diversity and teach inclusively to ensure we minimise barriers to learning.

In this module, we will investigate inclusivity and explore factors that create barriers to learning. You’ll learn how to reduce barriers for learners with dyslexia, autism, ADHD and other specific needs in your teaching and learning resources.


Day 4: Harnessing AI and digital technologies

Digital technologies should always work in service of learning. But without careful planning, digital technologies can create more barriers to learning than they reduce. A key challenge for educators is how to choose and use digital technologies appropriately.

In this module, we will evaluate popular technologies to identify their potential to support learning. You’ll learn how to use Al and digital technologies to motivate and engage students, and how to align digital technologies with specific learning activities.


Day 5: Facilitating active learning

Lectures can be useful, but there are more effective ways to engage students in a learning experience. Being able to write and adapt a lesson plan and choose appropriate activities is a core skill for every educator

In this module, we will examine how Al can help us apply a range of learning theories to increase student engagement. You’ll learn how to produce an activity-focused lesson plan which enables students to learn through doing.


Day 6: Giving effective feedback

Giving feedback is one of the most powerful things a teacher does. Effective feedback is integral to transformative learning, and feedback should be constructive, developmental and refer to specific learning outcomes.

In this module, we will examine different ways of providing feedback to students. You’ll learn how to use feedback to improve student achievement, and how to give effective feedback that motivates learners while delivering robust learning and assessment.
