BEL+T has developed a relational framework for learning and teaching that is described above by our DIAgram. The framework and its representation focus on Learning Engagement and Belonging as the foundational aims for the design of these activities, and the Coordinated integration of Delivery + Interaction + Assessment as elements that support this. The entire framework is encompassed by a Supportive Learning Environment to acknowledge the importance of student wellbeing.
Delivery refers to the learning 'objects' that teachers share with their students.
Interaction identifies the crucial opportunities for students to engage and connect with one another and/or their teachers.
Assessment focuses on effective strategies for guiding student learning through assessment design and feedback.
Coordination is the behind-the-scenes work to integrate discrete elements into meaningful learning opportunities for students.
Supportive Learning Environments
The ways that teachers organize and facilitate what and how students learn can enhance holistic student wellbeing by contributing supportive learning environments.
