Introduction

This module is of benefit to you if you are a professional healthcare practitioner with a role in education who has an interest in the use of technology enhanced learning. In this module you are introduced to the key theories on the use and development of technology enhanced learning (TEL).

You are supported to develop aspects of or a whole e-enabled learning object using open source software. You work in interactive workshops using the technology guided by a team of staff who have first-hand experience of developing open educational materials using open source software.

The module is facilitated by an Interprofessional team to help broaden your perspectives outside of your professional group. Students are encouraged to develop a range of independent study skills to locate and use best evidence to inform your learning.

1. Patient centred and service driven
2. Are educationally coherent
3. Are innovative and evidence based
4. Deliver high quality educational outcomes
5. Deliver value for money
6. Ensure equity of access and quality of provision
