Alan Masson introduces Viewpoints

Today, Project Director Alan Masson gave a short presentation on Viewpoints to staff in Access and Distributed Learning in the University. For many ADL staff, this was their first introduction to Viewpoints and its aims - namely, helping staff think about their curriculum design.

Alan gave a brief overview of the project, highlighting the five key strands for examination -
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Resources and information management
  • Communities
  • Teaching and learning
  • Module pathways
He also touched on the theoretical basis which will inform Viewpoints work in these five areas - such as the University of Strathclyde's REAP principles and the SCONUL Seven Pillars of Information Literacy Model.
