A Socio-technical Approach to UK HE module design

After the EDULEARN conference earlier this month, the graphic below has been developed to try to represent the principles concerning a socio-technical approach to module design. This approach has been manifest in the ‘Living and Working on the Web’ module outlined in some of our earlier posts, graphics and videos.

You can find a graphical summary of this approach here.

Please let us know what you think about this and how the approach can be developed and improved.

The Theoretical Framework – Exploded

This is an interactive version of the graphic contained in the poster in the previous post. Click on the hotspots (the + signs) for fuller explanations of the theories and digital literacies which have underpinned the design of the ‘Living and Working on the Web’ module – there are links to all the source papers there too.

It is best viewed on full screen, and by clicking hotspots from the centre outwards.
