This unit builds upon participant knowledge and skills in contemporary learning design to optimise and authentically assess learning across the combination of physical learning environments, including work/community-based settings/simulated spaces, laboratories and field trips, and online/ remote/ blended environments. Using an inquiry-led approach, participants will investigate the dynamic relationship between place, space and learning relevant to their practice. Participants will explore contemporary literature to inform designs and approaches suitable for diverse learners in these contexts. Participants will examine the potential learning affordances of multiple learning environments to inform the design and development of an authentic learning experience for either a regular period of study or an intensive mode of study such as the VU Block.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
