This page showcases examples of teaching, learning and assessment activities under the category of Acquisition, sharing examples from different Colleges throughout the University.  This category is based on those used within the ABC Curriculum Design Workshops(opens in a new tab), informed by Diana Laurillard’s Conversational Framework(opens in a new tab).

Each show case item shows an overview of the activity, how this was used in practice (with a link to a more in depth blog), a video and step-by-step instructions about how this activity can be run.
