Description

As the availability of digital applications and tools has grown, interest in using these tools to create digital learning content has also expanded dramatically. But does using electronic elements impact the way learners learn? What is the relationship between pedagogy and digital content? Are all digital activities worth the investment of time to create?

Objectives

This is a competency-based course that focuses on specific best practices that you will use to demonstrate your ability to transform a learning activity by applying digital pedagogy best practices. Through a series of learning activities and collaborative exercises, you'll consider the rationale and purpose of digital pedagogy, critique some common digital transformation models, and evaluate some sample activities. As you engage in reflection and discussion you'll consider the value of digital pedagogy for your blended course, and identify approaches that are most relevant to you.
