Preparatory Activities by Students

Here you design any activities that you want students to do in advance of the learning session itself: e.g. reading a book chapter or doing some research.

If you want to try a new technique or tool for a familiar form of activity, choose either What technology can I use for...? or What can I do with...? for ideas, tips and examples.

For each activity:

  • Give it a brief title or label (e.g. 5-10 words)
  • What is the nature of the activity: i.e.
    • What will students do, and what techniques will you use (e.g. note-taking, mind-mapping)?
    • How will you accommodate differentiation?
    • Will you offer students a choice in what they do?
  • Which learning outcome does the activity support? You might want to look back to the Learning Outcomes page. Subject to functionality: may have drop-down list.
  • How long should the activity take?
  • Will students work individually, in pairs or in groups during the activity? If working collaboratively:
    • How big are the groups?
    • How do you want to divide up the students? (i.e. Can they choose, or do you want to decide yourself?)
  • What tools and resources will students need? e.g. books, handouts, Websites, IT, other equipment. Either include a short list on this page or remind yourself to look at the Resources page. Subject to functionality: may have drop-down list.
