Applying Active Digital Education for the Design of Online Learning

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapterpeer-review


ADE places a strong emphasis on 'learning by doing' in a digital environment. Learners actively engage with content, make sense of ideas, represent them explicitly, and build knowledge through dialogue. It also draws upon the Universal Design for Learning Framework (UDL) for making ADE inclusive. This approach enables learning to be designed or modified for the greatest diversity of learners possible. This case study demonstrates how digital tools can add pace, collaboration, and engagement to synchronous and asynchronous online learning with a focus on English as an Additional Language (EAL) students.
