The subject provides opportunities for participants to examine the changing nature of tertiary learning and teaching in the digital age and the implications of these changes for the roles of teachers and students, the development of generic skills, capabilities and attributes, and emerging professional identities. Participants will consider key educational philosophies that underpin contemporary approaches to 'blended learning design', drawing in particular on 'constructive alignment' (Biggs & Tang, 2011) and 'affordances' (Gibson 1977) as a foundation for designing blended experiences for 21st century learners. Participants will also examine concepts such as: the networked learner, digital citizenship, lifewide and lifelong learning, authentic learning, Open Education Resources, technology-enabled learning, and e-assessment. They will engage in critiquing existing learning designs, as well as designing small-scale authentic and blended learning and teaching experiences.
