ABC Workshops

Activity Based Curriculum (ABC) workshops, facilitated by the Digital Education team, are an effective and collaborative method of planning and designing modules. This method has been adapted for University of Lincoln academics/teaching staff, from the University College London’s (UCL) original framework (Arena Blended Curriculum) which has been trialled in other HE institutions.

In just 90 minutes, using a card format, teams are able to work together to create a visual ‘storyboard’ outlining the type and sequence of learning activities (both online and offline) required to meet the module’s learning outcomes. ABC is particularly useful for new programmes or those changing to an online or more blended format. These workshops not only bring module teams together, but its an opportunity to work in module teams to co-design modules that focus on the activity content.

These workshops are engaging and hands-on sessions, with materials and guidance provided. If you’re a University of Lincoln staff member you can book sessions by contacting digitaleducation@lincoln.ac.uk.
