Create courses that support learning

It can be difficult to create courses with a good structure and an inspiring mix of learning activities that support students' learning. Luckily, there is both research and practitioner experiences from around the world to help you in this work. The ABC-method is about finding ways to work systematically to document, share and contribute to the development of teaching competence.

About the Workshop

In this workshop we introduce a successful and well-tried workshop method for course design, the so-called ABC method, which we have adapted to an online format and to creating courses in Athena. During the workshop, you and your colleagues work on an online storyboard that makes it easy to design and get an overview of the entire course with a clear structure and suggested activities. The storyboard is then used to plan the course content.

The ABC method

The ABC method has been developed at the University College of London to develop a clear and well-planned course design quickly. The ABC method works with six different cards aimed at describing activities that lead to learning and that can be used in both physical and digital spaces :

  • Acquisition
  • Collaboration
  • Discussion
  • Investigation
  • Practice
  • Production
