Active Learning Using Popular Technologies
Produced by the Learning Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), this case study looks at the theme of harnessing technology. It describes how Sussex Downs College set out to show students how to use more innovative features of technology to support collaborative and active learning. To begin with, this involved teaching staff how to create more dynamic, organic and repeatable sets of e-learning resources.
Staff and students gained a better understanding of software and its use in the design and delivery of learning materials. This helped to improve teaching and learning strategies which can be repeated from class to class and course to course.
