The recent renewal of the UON Language Centre’s Intermediate program provided an opportunity to further embed a blended approach to ELICOS delivery. In an effort to establish a digital culture from the first day of this 10 week program, the revamped level orientation session included collateral featuring a range of QR codes. These QR codes take students directly to the essential apps that will be utilized during the program. Featured apps include information focused on a range of issues pertinent to the student experience, including information about the campus and Newcastle, alongside apps that will provide for “…opportunities to extend their language learning outside the classroom” (NEAS Quality Principle B3). QR codes simplify the process of establishing the importance of the digital culture to the classroom, and the conditions necessary to create such a culture.
This practical session will talk through the creation of the collateral, and how the use of QR codes have simplified and fast-tracked the creation of the conditions necessary to establish a digital culture in a classroom.
