Webinar 1: The ABC Learning Design Toolkit, 05/06/2020
5 June 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm BST
To mark the completion of our Erasmus+ ABC to VLE project, we will hold a series of webinars to share the outputs of the project. Join us to learn how 12 universities worked together to evaluate and localise ABC LD.
First webinar in the series – The ABC Learning Design Toolkit, Friday 5th June, 12:00 London time. Registration via Eventbrite.
UCL’s ABC learning design method is now popular across tertiary education and beyond. Participants have found the workshop-based ‘sprint’ approach to be quick, engaging and productive. ‘Classic’ ABC is built around a collaborative and intensive 90’ workshop in which module teams work together to produce a paper-based storyboard describing the student journey.
Over the last two years UCL has led an Erasmus project to develop and evaluate ABC with 12 partners (https://abc-ld.org). We have focused on localisation to institutional contexts and have explored the important link between storyboard designs and the VLE. The main output, available soon, will be a freely downloadable Toolkit of resources and guides, enabling any college or university to adapt and adopt the method.
Although developed to promote blended learning, during the COVID emergency, some institutions have now modified ABC to run remotely and to support their need to support a rapid transition to online learning. ABC is proving an effective tool in this new format, too.
In this webinar, Clive Young and Nataša Perović, who originally developed ABC, will discuss the spread of ABC, its variants, the Toolkit, why it seems to work and its potential to meet COVID challenges. We hope you can join us and bring your questions.
The Webinar will take place on 5th June at 12pm, London time. This webinar will be recorded and the recording will be linked to our ABC to VLE project website (https://abc-ld.org). The link for this webinar will be shared with registered attendees via Eventbrite email. If you are thinking of online ABC LD, please join us for a chat.
