Design and develop learning strategies

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements and Performance Criteria


Performance Criteria


Determine the parameters of the learning strategy


The purpose of the learning strategy is clarified


The likely target groups and their needs for learning are clarified


The characteristics of the likely target groups are researched and identified


Qualification options for meeting the likely target group needs are researched, and the appropriate option is selected


Consultations are carried out to confirm the parameters of the learning strategy with relevant people


Develop the framework for the learning strategy


The learning strategy design reflects the qualification requirements of the selected qualification


Industry or organisation documentation is analysed to determine additional and supporting requirements


Options for design are researched and analysed, based on likely target groups, their learning needs and contexts for delivery


The learning strategy design reflects and is supported by appropriate learning theories and instructional design principles


The design approach is determined and broad content headings are identified and documented


Consultations are carried out to confirm the framework


The review process for the learning strategy is developed


Devise the content and structure of the learning strategy


Each content heading is elaborated and documented to form an overview of content to be addressed


The content is sequenced to support learning, and overall timelines are determined within operating constraints


Learning strategy outcomes are expressed to reflect both generic and specific learning outcomes to be achieved


Pathways are addressed and documented


Appropriate delivery and assessment strategies are identified and documented, taking account of the learning parameters, design framework and learning context


Operational requirements are identified and documented


The completed learning strategy is checked for completeness


Review the learning strategy


The learning strategy is reviewed in collaboration with relevant people against relevant criteria prior to and post implementation


A post-implementation review process is documented which includes measures for identifying the effectiveness and quality of the learning strategy


Recommendations/changes based on outcomes of the review processes are made, where appropriate, and documented


Modifications are further confirmed with relevant people, where appropriate
