Week 8 Reflection, sharing and becoming a champion

Introduction

Welcome to Week 8 of this badged open course. This final week builds on the work you’ve carried out so far to further develop your understanding of implementing the tricky topics and learning design processes in your organisation. The previous weeks’ activities have given you a good understanding of tricky topics and the tricky topic process that will help you to help your students to succeed. This week’s activities introduce you to some of the theories and elements that underpin tricky topics.

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

  • relate the tricky topics and learning design processes to your own context
  • identify how you can adapt tricky topics and learning design processes for your own teaching and organisational needs
  • understand how to share your understanding with colleagues through cultivating a learning community
  • develop different approaches to becoming a tricky topics and learning design champion.
