ABC Learning Design
Please note: New version of downloadable ABC resources with support pack for local implementation will be released in April 2018 (supported by HEFCE funding).
ABC is an effective and engaging hands-on workshop that has now been trialled with great success over a range of programmes. In just 90 minutes using a game format teams are able to work together to create a visual ‘storyboard’ outlining the type and sequence of learning activities (both online and offline) required to meet the module’s learning outcomes. ABC is particularly useful for new programmes or those changing to an online or more blended format.
