Online content is prevalent in many UBC courses, but content creation and user-interaction have seen little change in the past decade. Tapestry is a new tool that will enable a novel development model for online course content: One that is learner-centered, constructivist, and emphasizes student-faculty co-creation and reusability. Alongside the new Tapestry interface, we are developing four interactive educational modules for use within Tapestry. Each module will deal with one aspect of living in a diverse world: (1) Intercultural Understanding; (2) Gender and Sexuality; (3) Indigenous Communities, and (4) Disabilities.
Tapestry is a 3-year Large Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (Large TLEF) project that is being carried out from 2018-2021.
