ABC LD team has been awarded two year Erasmus+ funding. From September 2018 we will be working with 12 European universities to take the ABC Learning Design method further. Learn more about the backround of this project   or visit Erasmus+ ABC to VLE: beyond curriculum design project website.

ABC LD  toolkit including downloadable ABC resources, guides and videos to support local implementation of ABC LD method has been released in 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.
