This unit of study investigates theoretical and practical issues related to flexible learning environments for higher education. Participants will have the chance to consider their own teaching beliefs in relation to constructivist, socially-based and problem-solving approaches to learning, especially as they relate to technology-supported learning activities. Drawing on recently published and established research into flexibly-supported learning, participants will design, develop and evaluate flexibly-supported learning activities that are relevant to their own teaching and learning contexts. On completion of the Unit, participants will be able to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned to new learning contexts.
