A learning design for engaging academics with online professional development modules

Iain Doherty


Our paper describes the design and development of a set of online professional development modules to support academic staff in improving and enhancing their teaching. We show how we created a learning design to allow staff to quickly and easily develop their teaching in line with University performance expectations whilst also providing staff with a sound basis for documenting their professional development using a newly created ePortfolio tool. We present data from the evaluation of the modules and discuss a research project for evaluating the ultimate impact of this initiative on student learning.
