Learning Café DES52
Carpe Diem Comes of Age
Date Friday, Dec 8 Time –
An amazing way of creating fast, effective, forward looking learning design is to use a team-based learning design process called Carpe Diem. Every moment during this Learning Café will be spent on designing something that can be put into immediate use with learners. It can be scaled beyond modules to programmes, which will be introduced in such a way that you take away the resources and make it your own to introduce, contextualise and scale in your own organisation or institution.
