FHM TDG Project Seminar: Frameworks for Planning Innovations in Online Teaching

FHM TDG Project Seminar: Frameworks for Planning Innovations in Online Teaching

Frameworks for IT integration provide a shared reference when co-planning courses, curricula or projects that aim to innovate. They can be useful for sharing and comparing best practices, as well as providing a baseline for measuring progress, both formally and informally. 

In this FHM TDG project seminar, Dr Wang Lixun and Dr Timothy Taylor introduce the most popular frameworks for planning innovation, such as TPACK, SAMR, TIM, SQD and PICRAT, with practical examples of how they can be used for planning, teaching and research. Some recommendations are made to assist adopting the most suitable framework according to the specific objectives of the context.
