ABC learning design workshop

Course description

ABC is an engaging hands-on learning design workshop, during which teaching teams create a visual ‘storyboard’ outlining the type and sequence of learning activities and resources in a topic (or set of topics in a course) required to meet learning outcomes.

ABC is particularly useful for course reviews, new courses or courses moving to an online or more flexible format. This workshop is most beneficial when all topic coordinators are present and there are two or more teaching staff available to work on each topic.

This workshop works very well as part of the curriculum design accelerator series including:

  • Strategic design
  • Course design
  • Curriculum content
  • Topic alignment
  • Digital learning design and delivery approaches

And can lead to more focused and targeted FLO-based workshops depending on needs of the teaching team. More information (and short videos with participants) about the ABC learning design approach is available at

Who should attend


What you will learn

The main aims of this workshop are for participants to experience a dynamic collaborative learning design process and enable participants to design activities and resources within a new topic or redesign an existing topic.

The intended learning outcomes are:

  • Undertake an efficient and effective activity-based learning design methodology.
  • Re/design a topic or course within agreed learning outcomes.

By the end of the workshop, topic/course teaching teams have designed their topics using a visual “storyboard” format, with the sequence and type of learning and assessment activities required to meet the topic learning outcomes.

If you are interested in arranging an ABC learning design workshop with your teaching team, please contact the learning designer in your College.
