This resource introduces some of the key concepts, tools and benefits of using e-learning in the teaching of English Studies and provides a useful starting point for introducing colleagues to the benefits of using a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The resource is made up of two activities one for use with groups and one for individuals.
This resource looks at the types of new media that a lecturer in English studies might employ when working online, the various contexts where that technology might be employed and the pedagogical strategies they might employ. There are two activities both available for individuals or groups. The first activity explores the range of technologies and their uses, the second involves the design of a learning activity around a piece of new media.
This resource explores how we structure online learning activities and the way we present them for our students. It contains two activities that involve exploring a range of interactive online activities from English Literature courses. Participants should also gain a wider appreciation of the means by which online activities can be delivered (structure, presentation etc).
This Good Practice Guide provides a long overdue introduction to the use of one of the most widely available and easy to use elearning tools - the discussion board. The Guide provides a wealth of practical advice about how to start using discussion boards effectively in the Higher Education and Further Education Context. Advice is given on how to design meaningful tasks, how to moderate the boards to ensure smooth and effective communication between students and solutions to the question of whether to assess contributions or not and how gets a chapter of its own. The final chapter deals specifically with the use of discussion boards in a Creative Writing context. It is hoped that the guide will inspire and encourage both you and your department to get involved in using discussion boards to enrich the student experience.
