A recent article in the E-learning Champions newsletter (managed by the E-Learning Environments) highlighted an imaginative exemplar of blended learning at UCL: ‘The Connected approach, Post Graduate Certificate in Clinical Ophthalmic Practice’.
This Ophthalmology programme is delivered by the the Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Hospital and is aimed at both students and professionals in ophthalmic units. Their programme poster explains more about this engaging and interactive course.
One of the tools employed is an online reading list, divided into different topics with a guidance note at the top. Some readings are specific articles, digitised under UCL’s CLA licence. The reading list can link to the relevant Moodle course, or readings can be embedded into the body of Moodle.
The list being Open Access makes this delivery perfect for those of the programme cohort who are not traditional UCL students.
