Back by popular demand, the CloudFirst 103 workshops are once again being delivered by the CloudFirst team. These workshops support Deakin teaching and learning teams to design their unit sites and are running in time for the start of the 2022 academic year.

CloudFirst 103 is an online guide for academic staff outlining how they can build a unit site. The two upcoming workshops help you start your do-it-yourself redesign, giving you a foundation to continue using the self-paced CloudFirst 103 resources during Trimester 2 this year in readiness for a 2022 launch.

The workshops and resources in CloudFirst 103 provide the knowledge and tools needed to work through the three stages of unit development: high-level mapping, learning activity design, and content production of a range of different types of learning resources, including videos, podcasts, images, and interactives.

The CloudFirst team are also able to schedule some check-in sessions with CloudFirst Senior Educational Designers after the two workshops. These sessions will be dependent on participant interest and will provide advice regarding your queries and progress.

To get the most out of the workshops, you will need to do a small amount of pre and post work on your unit.

  • Workshop 1: How do you design a unit for CloudFirst delivery?
    Thursday 28 October, 10am-12pm

  • Workshop 2: How do you build a unit site that is an engaging and interactive learning space?
    Thursday 4 November, 10am-12pm

Attendance is limited, so don’t miss your chance to get started using the CloudFirst approach and register now. Deakin staff can register through Zoom.
