As we reach the end of the year, now is the perfect time to reflect on what you thought worked and didn’t work so well in your teaching this year, and to and take on board any feedback from your students. Are there things you’d like to tweak or change for next time? Session 1, 2016 iLearn spaces can already be created in iTeach, so why not make a start now while it’s all fresh in your mind!

Want some ideas on how to go about refreshing your unit?
Read about the five steps to Refresh your course without (too much) pain and suffering by Rebecca Brent from Education Designs, Inc. It all starts with identifying why you’d like to make a change and then following the steps for gathering ideas, planning and implementing your changes. You’ll be reassured by the advice in this article that you only need to start small and a good approach is to spread changes over multiple semesters.
You can inject some new life into your unit with simple additions to your iLearn space such as a new activity or resource, or links to recent videos or images relevant to the topic. Even better, involve your students in searching out these new resources! Of course, if you are feeling game why not check out these tools new to iLearn, Zoom web conferencing or Lecture Tools interactive presentations!
