Creating innovative and engaging eLearning activities and materials can take time and often requires technical skills. Many organisations are now involving their students and trainees in the use of digital technologies to support their curricula, and in particular the development of online learning resources.

Framed by a number of case-studies at both undergraduate and trainee level, the workshop will be largely participative with activities using digital tools to create resources. Through reflecting on your practical experiences of the workshop activities, you will develop an insight into the benefits for both teachers and learners, including the range of knowledge and skills (both technical and non-technical) developed, when working in partnership with learners to develop e-learning projects.
The workshop will involve extensive participation from attendees through a variety of interactive activities – brainstorms and small-group work, presenting back to the wider group, etc. A large part of the workshop will involve all attendees using a number of easy to use tools to create simple but effective online interactive exercises, reflecting on the level of knowledge and skills developed.
