    It is best if you choose something you have taught before to focus on how media production can influence learning and to reflect on your learning of media production.
    • Document what will be learned. Create a map, a web of ideas, a taxonomy of skills, list of objectives, etc. What are the key takeways for students? What do they need to know? What do they need to do.
    • Develop s post media activity a learner could complete that would then provide you with evidence that this learning has been met. Keep it quick, concise. Media and evidence activity.
