Xerte Online Toolkits

We were delighted to hear that we were successful in our bid for an HEA Digital Literacy in the Disciplines award to embed the use of Xerte Online Toolkits in one of our Health Psychology modules from September 2013.

The plan is to create two PBL (Problem Based Learning) scenarios in which Health Psychology students create interactive learning materials as part of their assessment. This will not only help them learn about Health Psychology but will increase their digital literacy skills, which is an aim of our Newman in the Digital Age project.  The materials they create will then be useful to Psychology and Counselling students who need to understand something of Health Psychology.

The module will be revalidated this summer to include the use of XOT and will run in semester one  next academic year.  I’ll provide a commentary on the project through this blog.

We will also be using XOT in the creation of a new online induction course for new students, introducing them to the university’s various web systems.
