Curriculum Design and Delivery
After asking colleagues in Planning, I came across some stored reports that contain information about the various awards/courses offered at the university, along with the modules that constitute those awards – from short certificates to full undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Whilst the reports date back to the 90s, the data within them is substantial enough to be used from 2006-07 onwards; in total this comes to around 50,000 individual award->module relationships spread over the 6 academic years represented in the data. The first question that arose was: ‘What to do with six years of course data?!?!?!’. After speaking with Tony Hirst last week, we came to the conclusion that this data would also have a great benefit if utilised in new ways within the university itself, as well as presenting the course information (and related datasets) to current and prospective students.

The project team are nearing completion of the development of an application to support external examiner appointment and reporting processes. This has provided an opportunity to assess the value of Archimate modelling in a limited scope. Background Using Archimate in the Enable Project
The 7Cs of design and delivery We are doing a small project at Leicester as part of the JISC-funded OULDI project. Essentially it is to do an audit of the OULDI tools and the Carpe Diem material developed at Leicester to create a new learning design offering that will be trialed and evaluated over the coming months at Leicester. I had a great meeting today with Gabi Witthaus and Ale Armellini to take stock of where we are. Gabi has been exploring the OULDI resources and has come up with a conceptual map of what we might include in the new offering and how they will relate to the Carpe Diem activities. We brainstormed around Gabi’s initial audit and then came up with a holistic conceptual framework, the 7Cs of design and delivery.

Learning Design toolbox This Cloudscape is a space to collate resources, tools, design methods and activities to enable hands on exploration, and a better understanding of Learning Design. Objects have been produced by a number of different teams working in this area. The clouds have been catagorised to allow for a pick 'n' mix use of the tools (i.e. choose a template, then pick the activities that fit into that template and best meet your learning and teaching needs).

I'm based in the Learning Development and Innovation team at the University and have been working with the Enable team since the start of 2009. My focus within the team has been on being able to integrate my previous project work (on creating Best Practice Models for e-learning) with PHOEBE. As part of this work I've been developing some new versions of our validation documents that incorporate guidance and advice for those completing them. Here I have reflected on my experiences to date, with the hope that it will help others considering how to start on the process. Guidance on Validation Documents

Latestendeavour Blog I am currently working with Mike Sharples on a university funded project looking at how post-graduate students use e-readers and tablet devices such as Kindles and ipads for their learning. Are these devices having an impact on the efficiency and nature of student study and what they are learning? What implications does this have for our pedagogy? We begun by casting a look at recent studies that had examined the changing role of e-reader devices. Whilst many of these are from the US and some focus more on the e-book rather than e-reader they reveal a rapidly evolving landscape of device use. The following aims to gather together and share references to some of the papers, reports and articles looked at.
