The Institute for Post-School Studies (IPSS) contacted the CIECT Team to discuss the use of eTools to support learning and teaching practices. The lecturers are able to meet with the students during block week sessions and further engage through online activities.
An online environment was created within iKamva for the ‘PG Dip: Technical Vocational Education & Training (TVET)’ Programme. The programme employs a rigorous methodology of reflective practice, supported by the use of online Lessons, Discussion Forums, Assignments and Course Resources.
Furthermore, the eTools are directly linked to the assessment criteria for formative and summative purposes; including – theory essays, reflective practice assignments and relevant practicals.
Structured online lessons:
The lecturers created a space whereby module content could be explored through a variety of digital media components. The modules are structured according to weeks, to include sections such as “warm up, introduction, core readings, supplementary readings, questions, tasks and lesson notes”. The lecturers provided students with videos, PowerPoint presentations, articles and online discussions that students are expected to engage in.
Online reflective & assessment spaces:
Students are also expected to explain and elaborate on their understanding of content through online discussions and submitting assignments; allowing lecturers to evaluate student progress.
Contact the CIECT Team to create a blended learning environment which supports your learning, teaching and assessment practices.
