Target Audience: Any staff involved in teaching and learning at Strathclyde

Strathclyde’s Blended, Online and Learning Design (BOLD) approach is a simple, inclusive toolkit that supports individuals and module teams to design cohesive, evidence-informed learning experiences for students in any discipline.    

 BOLD recently gained approval through Strathclyde’s educational committee structures, and is now being rolled out across the Institution.   

 The aim of BOLD is to promote best-practice in course design and to align module and programme design with various other processes and resources (from CCAP to Weekly Planners) that exist within Strathclyde’s learning design framework. While it is described as a ‘blended and online learning design’ toolkit, the approach is equally effective for those wishing to design fully in-person classes.  

 To enable colleagues to experience this design methodology and apply it to the design/re-design of modules and programmes, we are running a series of TWO half-day workshops that will introduce the BOLD framework to participants through a set of developmental activities 

Outcomes/ Objectives;

 It is expected that participants will attend both ONLINE workshops in this series.  

  • Develop student and graduate personas to help plan modules and programes  
  • Design strong learning objectives using Bloom’s Taxonomy  
  • Select suitable assessment and feedback activities  
  • Plan learning activities using BOLD cards 
  • Create a module storyboard
