ABC Learning Design is a high-energy, hands-on curriculum development workshop developed at UCL. With this template, teaching teams can collaborate to design a storyboard of the student learning journey in just 90 minutes!

The storyboard is made up of cards representing 6 learning types:

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

Collaborators will sequentially order the cards and incorporate the learning activities and assessments required to meet the module’s learning outcomes.

Assessment methods, cross-program themes, and institutional policies can be integrated into the process. The key is pace, engagement and collaboration. The ABC Learning Design workshop is particularly useful for new modules or those changing to an online or more blended format. This approach generates high levels of engagement and stimulates creative informed dialogue and group reflection about curriculum design.
