Week 6 Innovating pedagogies and targeted interventions


This week you will read about ‘innovating pedagogies’ and see some examples of specific interventions that have been successfully used to overcome tricky topics in several different contexts. You will then put into action your knowledge of tricky topics from Weeks 1 to 3, and the learning design principals that you learned in Weeks 4 and 5, in order to design an intervention for a tricky topic.

By the end of this week you should be able to:

  • know what is meant by ‘innovating pedagogies’
  • develop understanding of how targeted interventions can be used to overcome tricky topics and their individual stumbling blocks
  • begin to create a targeted intervention for a given tricky topic.
