The EDTL Approach

The EDTL Approach

In the context of Covid-19, the project has re-focused to support a move to a more blended approach to teaching and learning in the academic year 2020/21. The EDTL Approach adheres to the pedagogy-first pillar of the project, while supporting staff in their digital professional development. A pathway with key considerations for those who are adapting a single module or a whole programme, normally taught wholly or partly face-to-face, is described. The student digital learning experience is maintained at the core.

Also available is the EDTL Approach for Students: planning effective learning during Covid-19. This resource has been developed by the EDTL student intern team.
