Experienced learning and development staff will be able to study for a new Certificate in Digital Learning Design from September this year. It will be suitable for people working in a range of contexts and across sectors.
Our Digital Learning Team worked in partnership with the Centre for Technology and Innovation in Learning at the University of Dundee to develop the undergraduate level certificate. The University of the West of Scotland validated the certificate on 12 June.
The online course has tutor support and will enable learners to develop a better understanding of digital learning and how to create and deliver more engaging, effective and impactful learning for staff in the social service sector. The activities and assessments focus on the application of learning on the programme to learners’ work and will draw on their work experience and practice contexts.
We are very excited by the potential of this programme to support the development of high quality learning experiences for staff in the social service sector and to provide learning and development staff with an up to date and highly sought after skill set. We hope the qualification will equip people to shape the future direction of digital learning in Scotland.
If you work in a learning and development role in social services or healthcare and would be interested in building your knowledge and skills in digital learning, contact Lee Ballantyne, Head of Education Futures at email@example.com at UWS for more information about enrolling in the programme.
