FutureLearn Pilot

Scope: UQ is working with FutureLearn to design, build and pilot an online module of COMU1120: Media and Society in Semester 2, 2017.

Benefit: This pilot will inform a broader comparison and evaluation of eLearning platforms in order to inform the development of a UQ eLearning strategy that supports UQ’s Student Strategy vision to extend flexible active and online learning for our students.

Student Strategy Learning Designers

Scope: Three new Student Strategy Learning Designer positions are currently being established to support Student Strategy-related work within faculties, focusing on curriculum design, and application of on-line and active face-to-face pedagogies in design and development of courses and associated resources.  The roles will report to ITaLI for supervision and professional practice support and development, but will be assigned and collocated within faculties (HaBS, Medicine and Science) in a hub-and-spoke organisational model.

Benefit: Academic staff will be better supported in teaching innovation, students will have more access to innovative teaching and work integrated learning opportunities.
