Moodle My Feedback report

Moodle My Feedback report

Moodle (wearing a graduation cap)The My Feedback report plugin displays all of the grades and feedback from across Moodle courses on one page. This allows both students and their teachers to easily view and compare feedback. This can motivate students to continue studying in the same way or change their study practices to improve their results.

The prototype of this plugin was developed by Inclusive Web staff. If you need Moodle plugins developed or upgraded, we can help.

Inclusive Teaching Practices

Inclusive Teaching Practices

student looking at noticeboard of all different thingsInclusive teaching practices enable all students to study as independently as possible. Teachers need to understand how they can create accessible learning environments, so they do not prevent their students from being able to study effectively.

Accessible learning environments support students with learning difficulties, disabilities and long-term health conditions. In improving teaching practices for these students, staff will also improve access for all students and staff.

The Inclusive Teaching Practices course teaches staff how to teach in ways that helps everyone in their class to learn effectively, in particular those with disabilities. The course provides practical advice on how to develop learning materials and teach in a way that does not disadvantage those with disabilities.

Curriculum development with ABC LD workshops

Curriculum development with ABC LD workshops

ABC workshop at UCLABC Learning Design workshops support staff to redesign their teaching to consider the student learning experience, embed appropriate technologies and align to institutional teaching strategies.

This 90 minute workshop takes staff step by step through the process of redesigning their course. It can be tailored to the needs of your institution.

In the workshop, staff consider six learning types and look at how these types of learning can be balanced across a course of study to provide students with engaging learning experiences.

Feedback from these workshops is very encouraging. Academics appreciate the opportunity to discuss the teaching structure with their colleagues and make plans to improve the student learning experience. The workshop simplifies the learning design process and enables teaching teams to rapidly discuss and plan the students’ journey through a course of study, without having to dedicate many hours to the task.

The ABC workshop materials are freely available under an opensource, share-alike license from abc-ld.org. Inclusive Web can help you to localise the training materials and can facilitate workshops within your own institution, so that you can introduce the method to your own academic support staff.
