The module is a component for a Health Management Master’s degree at a UK university, which attracts international students from various health-and management-related backgrounds. Pre-pandemic, it was taught through a series of face-to-face lectures and seminars, and delivered three times yearly with an average class size of 90 students per cohort. The FutureLearn platform was chosen to offer students the benefits of flexible learning, access to teaching materials anywhere anytime, as well as the pedagogical benefits of active learning with tutors and peers.
Application of Conversational Framework in designing asynchronous teaching and learning activities would benefit from the two-pronged approach involving a combination of content acquisition materials with complementary active learning tasks.
