The Technology-Enhanced Learning Team is offering a number of drop-in workshops to develop and enhance your Moodle courses.
The workshops will introduce you to the Bath Baseline, an easy-to-follow guide designed as a set of minimum recommendations that staff who teach can use to develop their online courses. It focuses on key areas such as consistency of online content, accessibility, communicating online and using online resources. For those looking to develop their skills further, we are also launching the Bath Baseline+ which provides additional advice and ideas for enhancing online teaching. Expert advice will be on hand to review your Moodle courses and suggest ways to improve your online teaching content.
18th October, 24th October, 7th November, 15th November, 29th November
Drop-in between 12:15 – 2:15pm, Chancellor’s Building 5.13
Who is it for?
The Bath Baseline is aimed at any member of staff who teaches online. It provides practical ideas and suggestions, and sets out clear recommendations for ensuring online courses are fully accessible and inclusive.
The Bath Baseline is designed as a set of recommendations and guidance to help staff enrich their online teaching, and we encourage staff to think about ways to make their online content clear, structured and engaging for students. For new programmes and modules, we recommend that you work with your Faculty Learning Technologist at the design stage, in order to create a layout that is consistent with the Baseline.
Is there any help available?
In addition to the Baseline and Baseline+, a set of online guides and templates are being produced to support staff and will be made available shortly. Further, a series on workshops are being rolled out this semester, where staff can share their Moodle courses and receive expert advice on ways to enhance their online teaching. In addition, Faculty Learning Technologists are working closely with Associate Deans for Teaching and Learning to ensure that all teaching staff are introduced to the Baseline, and receive support and help in their Faculties.
