ABC at Swansea University
‘the high-energy, hands-on curriculum development workshop’
The ABC approach generates high levels of engagement, dialogue and group reflection about curriculum design. In just 90 minutes teaching teams work together to create a visual ‘storyboard’ made up of pre-printed cards.
Based on the six learning types concept from Prof Diana Laurillard’s ‘Conversational Framework’ Teaching as a Design Science (2012), teams can review existing modules or design new ones. The fast-paced, focussed nature of the workshop enables busy academics to plan learning activities to meet the module or programme learning outcomes.
Over 35 universities and colleges throughout the UK, Europe and beyond have benefitted from the ABC Learning Design methodology and we are pleased to be able to offer support for this methodology here at Swansea.
