Deakin’s free short course on Transforming Digital Learning is now open for six months with a free digital upgrade on FutureLearn to support anyone who wants to acquire a range of practical strategies in transitioning to online learning. This course is particularly relevant for those ‘pivoting’ their practice due to the COVID-19 pandemic, challenging and changing the landscape of digital learning. Join us here.

What will you be learning in this course?

In response to the current changing online landscape, the big question we’ll be looking at in this course is: ‘How do we transform the future practice of digital learning?’ To answer this, we’ll explore what is meant by transformative approaches to digital learning from a range of professional contexts, including your own.

Along with the latest thinking and literature around digital learning, we will also look at the relatively new concept of ‘service design’ as part of our design practices. Service design allows practitioners to create holistic online learning experiences with the learners in mind first and foremost.

Further, because this course is targeted at a network of professionals working in and around digital learning, also learning with the experts and experienced teachers, you will be able to draw on and expand on your current knowledge and practice. Already, there is a lot of discussion in the course on how these frontline professionals are responding to the rapidly changing global crisis, the COVID-19 outbreak, echoing the importance of digital learning.

We look forward to seeing many of you transforming digital learning at the coalface in the course!
