The Elevate Team have been helping course teams and lecturers answer the question, where to start when thinking about a distance learning course? We address this in a number of ways, however, the starting point is the coffee conversation where we'll try to tease out some ideas around your vision, experience and the principles for an effective course. The image below summaries how we approach the first discussion. We also use this as the basis for the PGCHEP workshop we run on the topic.
If you are thinking of developing a distance learning course, module or CPD unit, we'd suggest you have a look at the questions and contact the Elevate Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) to start discussing your ideas. We'll hopefully hear from you soon :-)
