Ideas and reflections from UCL's Digital Education team


Futurelearn How To Teach Online: Providing Continuity for Students (Join us!)

By Clive Young, on 20 March 2020

A new Futurelearn MOOC is starting on Monday 23 March designed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The three-week course will explore practical ways to teach and support your students online.

Members of the UCL Digital Education team will be participating on this course and we hope the MOOC will stimulate ‘next step’ ideas for supporting our students..

To supplement the Futurelearn forums we have set up a UCL-specific Teams channel. Teams will be a place to discuss the ideas of the course from a UCL context and add a practical localisation to the UCL toolset. We hope you can join us.

To join the Futurelern MOOC, go to https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/teach-online/

To join in the UCL Teams discussion go to How To Teach Online (FutureLearn MOOC) – UCL community

    Fantastic – you’re all so very welcome and it will be interesting to see how your local group works alongside the global cohort. We’re planning to use some of the core learning design approaches that feature regularly at UCL but one thing will stand out – we’re hoping to use Learning Designer (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/learning-designer/) as a key tool in the discovery but also sharing, remixing and reusing of learning designs and lessons plans throughout the course. Maybe not so much in week 1 as we warm up but certainly as we head into weeks 2 and 3, and for as long as the course re-runs we’ll be encouraging a global community to help each other, guided by us and other expert Mentors, teachers & learners taking part in the course.

    Do let me know if any of you from Digital Education want to join at course Mentors on future runs, we’ll have a lot of this to work through over the coming weeks and months.

    On a personal note, knowing you’re all my former team, it’ll be an honour to do this together.
