VIVES aims at connected curricula and our main focus is on blended learning. Upgrading face-to-face approaches towards more blended learning formats demands new instructional design. A question that arises is how do we best help our time-pressured teachers in this process in order to develop rich blended courses? Many of the current methods of learning design consultancy seemed to be support-intensive, time consuming and therefore poorly scalable. The ‘ABC curriculum design method’ based on research from University College London (Young & Petrovic, 2016), meets with our concerns. The key of the approach is pace, engagement and collaboration. Focus interviews will be used to gain insight in the effect and the long-term results of teachers who followed the workshops at VIVES University college in order to optimize the method.
