[10:00 – 1:00] The Activity-Centred Analysis and Design framework – learning to connect theory, design and practice
Lucila Carvalho, Pippa Yeoman & Jenny Green
The Activity-Centred Analysis and Design framework has been used to analyse and design a broad range of complex learning situations in universities, schools, museums, and informal settings. This workshop is an invitation to practically engage in innovative educational design, considering how an assemblage of elements – learning tasks, digital and material resources, and people – can be brought together to support productive learning activity. Participants will discuss the application of pedagogical concepts using a set of cards that were specifically created to prompt conversations about design for learning. Working in groups, participants will consider how their design choices align across scale levels, accommodate socio-cultural and socio-material approaches to learning, and support connection, collaboration and choice across diverse cohorts. The face-to-face half-day workshop will introduce participants to core ideas of the ACAD framework and wireframe, and a series of hands-on design challenges.
[2:00 – 5:00] Nurturing relationship-rich practices
Kelly Matthews and Peter Felten
Relationships matter – those interactions that connect students with each other, teachers and broader communities for the purpose of learning, being and becoming. Technology can be a vital part of relational teaching learning, along with modality, curriculum, pedagogy, feedback and assessment. When tertiary educators’ align their values and their everyday teaching choices, they can configure all these elements to enable relationship-rich education. In this half-day workshop, participants will identify values underlying relationship-rich educational practices, including those related to the role of students; evaluate real case studies of practice across multiple modalities to explore relationship-rich approaches in action; co-curate a resource matching technological platforms to specific relationship-building pedagogical and assessment practices; and share practices by spotlighting stories of participants.
