Making it Work: Building Learning Communities at a Distance
We held Making it Work: Building Learning Communities at a Distance on 19 May 2016. This event gave the Scottish sector an opportunity to consider the challenges of creating effective learning opportunities for students on collaborative, online
or distance programmes, and of supporting staff working in these contexts.
Through keynote presentations and case studies, delegates learned how colleagues create effective learning communities across a variety of types of collaborative, online, and distance programmes.
As part of the event, we designed a card sort exercise. The cards allow you to work with groups of staff within your institution to consider the design and delivery of effective collaborative activity. Use the activity and cards as a workshop or team
meeting to evaluate your own institutional practice.
