Funding has been granted for work to research, develop and pilot a framework to assist individual academics and course teams in optimising the use of digital technologies as they design new programmes or revise existing ones. The work, which is closely aligned with the Digital Education Strategy, will be based on the principles of Learning Design. It will draw on previous research in this field at Oxford and elsewhere, and will review similar frameworks currently in use at other leading research universities in the UK.
The outputs of the work will be a supportive framework appropriate to Oxford, together with associated professional development workshops and resources for academics wishing to engage with technology enhanced learning. The work will be completed in July 2018 and will lay the foundation for a service provided collaboratively by Academic IT Services and the Oxford Learning Institute.
