Knowledge and information-based learning resources often fail to connect with a learner’s application of skills and knowledge. 

This session considers the skills critical in writing effective digital learning content and framing self-paced and collaborative activities for students. 

We will explore writing for different types of learning content (knowledge, demonstration, case studies, scenarios, terminology and problems), writing effective activities using interactive tools, and writing collaborative activities.

At the end of this workshop with Mick Gwyther, you will be able to:

  • Understand the essential characteristics of digital learning content and activities

  • Condense text heavy resources into lighter and more interesting content

  • Apply story-driven characteristics when writing case studies and scenarios

  • Recognise writing styles that enable interactive engagement and self-paced and collaborative learning activities

  • Work with subject matter experts and facilitators when planning and drafting content

  • Pocket some tips and tricks for writing

Participants will receive:

  • The handout: Writing planning guide
