This week, we invited Dr Sandrine Peraldi a Subject Matter Expert (SME) and faculty member at UCD, to host a webinar displaying a digital learning project. Co-host and DLI employee, Eva Kilar-Magdziarz, also outlined her role as Instructional Designer in this project.

Here are the main highlights from their presentation:
Overview of Project
The project involved the development of ‘Scenario-based Online Resources Intercultural Communication (ICC)’ funded by the National Forum. It entailed the enhancement of teaching and learning, where academics improve teaching and learning processes.
Their main aim was to get students to understand theory through interactive resources and online scenario-based learning.
Summary of Project Deliverables
Redesign of the learning experience
Set up in the Virtual Learning Environment (Brightspace)
Design assessment strategies and feedback
Online resources containing all material concepts & theory
2 Interactive Videos built around real-life scenarios
The project chose to follow the ADDIE model due to time and financial considerations. This includes analysis, design, development, implementation & evaluation. Below outlines some challenges faced by Sandrine (SME) and how Eva (ID) helped overcome them.
