If your module needs some redesign, then sign up for a CAIeRO module redesign workshop today!
CAIeRO can be done with a course team or individually. It is usually a two day workshop, which works through several stages of design activity.
Team CAIeROs have the advantage of co-designing modules on the same programme, which helps with creating a consistent learner experience (and also with team building!).
To arrange a team CAIeRO, contact: LD@northampton.ac.uk
If your team are not currently able to get together for a CAIeRO, you can still benefit from the process by bringing your module to a CAIeRO for Individuals. These sessions are open to staff from all subject areas, so you will benefit from some cross-disciplinary perspectives as well as guidance from trained facilitators.
To sign up for a CAIeRO for Individuals, contact: Ming.Nie@northampton.ac.uk
Note: participants tell us that they get the most out of CAIeRO if they complete the full workshop. That said, we recognise that teams and individuals may not always need to complete all the stages. If you’d like to arrange a session covering a particular element, e.g. storyboarding a module or prototyping learning activities, please contact the Learning Design team.
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
- Our programme is going through PSR next year – we want to make some changes
- How can I make sure my new course will meet students’ needs?
- I would like to adapt my teaching for delivery at Waterside
Through this you will...
Take part in a creative, innovative approach to course design or revision. You will develop a course blueprint, including aims, learning outcomes and assessment plan and create a storyboard of the Learning and Teaching process and develop examples of student activities.
Who would benefit from this workshop
All Learning and Teaching staff (Programme and Module Leaders, lecturers, ALs, Academic Librarians and other Learning Support staff)
CAIeRO develops your skills for course & activity planning and design by involving you in planning for your own teaching
The workshop activity is grounded in your own subject area, ensuring the design is appropriate to subject priorities and content.
A strong focus in the workshop is on appropriate ways in which technology can be blended into the course design, developing students’ digital skills.
The workshop helps you to check that the course design and the activities you use will support the needs of individuals and different student groups.
You will be encouraged to ensure that learning activities are relevant to the professional focus of the course.
