Model A outlines an approach to content delivery for a topic within a module that requires students to engage with content prior to a discussion session(s). This model may be used as a week or topic planner depending on the learning objectives that need to be covered.
The delivery of content in the first instance would be asynchronous in this model, with information on expectations made available to ensure the students are clear on the work required.
The following step would involve students and teaching staff having an opportunity to discuss, share and collaborate on the topic in a structured setting.
Opportunities for students to check their understanding are then provided and/or further content delivery and follow up discussions can be scheduled as required to deliver the learning objectives. At the conclusion of the topic a wrap up, summary or revision session can be scheduled that concludes the topic and sets the scene for upcoming activities.
