About this module

In this module you will discuss the importance of equivalency and versatility when designing for, and teaching in, the Flexible Learning context. You will explore and analyse equivalent instructional approaches, utilising artefacts from learning activities across the three Flexible Learning modes. You will use this knowledge to design learning experiences that lead to the acquisition of the same learning outcomes across the three learning modes. Finally, you will design a constructively aligned Flexible Learning activity plan that provides your students with equivalent learning experiences when studying on campus, synchronously online or asynchronously online.
