The Learning Design & Development (LDD) team participated in a two day ‘Refresh/Refocus’ workshop on the 13th and 14th of July, 2015 at the Novotel Hotel in Lami. Valentine Hazelman, the Senior Learning Designer was the key facilitator of the workshop and the session was inaugurated with remarks from Professor Richard Coll (DVCLTSS) and Mr. Dhiraj Bhartu (Acting Director, CFL).
The LDD team was divided into groups of 5 members to carry out discussions pertaining to course design and development. The different groups carried out a SCORE analysis of the work at CFL and strategized practical solutions to refocus the work of the team. The revised LDD framework towards blended and online development and the 2016 Portfolio were also discussed as key elements of the workshop. Following further group discussion around the framework, revisions were made on consensus.
Following this workshop, the team looks forward to making inroads into its revised approach to learning design and development with reflective practice in mind.
