There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
Have you heard about how big data is bringing about changes in education and training? And how learners’ data are being protected – or not – when different learning platforms are used? This subject examines current, historical and emerging issues in the field of Learning Design.
Students examine topics including ethical considerations in Learning Design, privacy concerns, the appropriate collection and use of learner data, the importance of context and cultural sensitivity, and copyright. They investigate examples of unethical or inappropriate learning design as well as finding and reflecting on appropriate learning design. Students then use this knowledge to design appropriate learning experiences in their particular contexts.
