“I learnt how to take a step back and not be the teacher for a bit, and actually let them learn and guide their learning.” (Digital Innovator)

This project involves working with Physiotherpay students in the building of digital resources for a new course in September 2018. A playlist of apps and learning videos will be created and evaluated. It is hoped that these apps will be accessible via mobile devices and laptops.

Blackboard is used as the platform for all the resources to be collated. Once apps had been selected, a focus group of students were selected to try the resources out. They then gave feedback on the apps, including their accessibility and usefulness for the course. Surveys for each app were also created.

Olivia and Nicola explain this project in further detail, at the Learning & Teaching conference 2018.
