This page contains detailed recommendations to help you provide students with a clear understanding of their Learning Journey from the onset to the completion of their module, and how it fits within the broader programme. By integrating some or all of these recommendations, students will have a clear understanding of the next steps in their learning and how they can effectively engage with the module.
In this video, Professor James Pickering, Student Education Academic Lead, discusses the Learning Journey strand of SCALA. The Learning Journey covers considerations and approaches to hybrid delivery that ensure students can clearly understand their learning pathway. The Learning Journey will also help you to plan, design and structure your teaching to fulfil learning objectives and outcomes.
The SCALA Learning Journey guidance is also available to download.
