Enhance your module.
Enhance your Module is a My Dundee Module, that will encourage you to think about how you get more out of the online learning environment in your My Dundee modules. Designed to be primarily self directed, it guides you through developing a new module to ensure your students will have all the key information they need to start learning.
It will also point you to examples of what’s working well across the University to help inspire you and highlight some approaches to blended learning that you might not be aware of.
The aim of the module is to give staff an authentic opportunity to participate in a fully online educational environment, run in a primarily asynchronous way. This will allow participants to recognise the experience as an educationally worthwhile, flexible, and enjoyable opportunity while becoming familiar with blended learning delivery, initially as a learner, then as an educator.
