Learning through practice enables the learner to adapt their actions to the task goal and use feedback to improve their next action. Feedback may come from self-reflection, from peers, from the teacher or from the activity itself.

There are core tools in the VLE and beyond that support “Practice” learning types. Click the information icons (i) to find out more about each potential tool.

In addition to the core tools in the VLE that support “Practice” learning types, the university also supports other tools identified below, which we refer to as VLE+ tools:

Finally we also list some tools below that we recognise as useful but do not offer direct support for. We refer to these as Recognised tools:

As you develop your Practice learning activities, think about how you can make the learning experience more accessible for all students – ask yourself the following questions: 

  • Is peer learning enabled and supported?
  • Are appropriate exemplars being used?
  • Can learners with various levels of ability undertake the proposed activities?
