Designing for enquiry-based blended learning (DiBL)

CEIMH gained valuable experience in helping project partners create enquiry-based blended learning designs. To disseminate this learning throughout the main institution we decided against holding a "show and tell" type event. Instead the purpose of DiBL was to actively encourage participants to engage with resources and software to learn through experience by creating enquiry-based blended learning designs. Coaches from across the University (including members from CEIMH, Schools of Education, Chemistry and the Central E-Learning Team and APOD), facilitated the teams in the development of their blended learning designs and triggers.

All the teams actively engaged in the learning process and produced a number of complex designs and triggering events. During the presentation phase the feedback from different groups indicated they had all learned a great deal from the enquiry-based learning method adopted for the event. Feedback suggested they had enjoyed and valued the hands on experiences the event offered.
