  1. 1. National Teaching Fellow 2012The 7Cs of Learning Design Gráinne Conole University of Leicester 5th November 2012 CSUEd pre-conference workshop Wagga Wagga
  2. 2. Outline• Theory and methodology – Mediating Artefacts – Affordances• Design-Based Research• Learning Design – Design representations• Resource Based Learning – OPAL – POERUP – MOOCs• Disaggregation of education
  3. 3. Promise and realitySocial andparticipatory mediaoffer new ways tocommunicate andcollaborate Not fully exploitedWealth of free Replicating bad pedagogyresources and tools Lack of time and skills
  4. 4. Learning Design Shift from belief-based, implicit approaches to design-based, explicit approaches Learning Design A design-based approach to creation and support of coursesEncourages reflective, scholarly practicesPromotes sharing and discussion
  5. 5. The Larnaca Declaration,Sept 2012
  6. 6. ConceptualiseWhat do we want to design, who for and why? The 7Cs Framework Consolidate Evaluate and embed your design
  7. 7. Socio-cultural perspectives Mediating Design Mediating Artefacts Concepts Artefacts (MA) Tools Dialogues Activities Creates Learning activity Teacher or Resource Has an Design inherentResearch questionsWhat Mediating Artefacts do teachers use? Other teachers and learnersWhat Mediating Artefacts can we create to can use or repurposeguide the design process? Vygotsky, Activity Theory
  8. 8. Analysis: Activity Theory Mediating Artefacts (MA) Creates Learning activity or Resource Teacher Division ofRules Community labourDesign and learning occur within a context
  9. 9. Co-evolution of tools and practiceCharacteristics of Characteristics oftools people Reflection Preferences Dialogue Interests Evolving practices Aggregation Skills Interactivity Context
  10. 10. Tools TasksForum, wiki, Read, search,blog, etc. critique, etc. Affordances Reflection Collaboration Dialogue Interaction Inquiry Learning Activity
  11. 11. Technology affordancesAffordances, Constraints,promotes… think about…Collaboration A blog for reflective practice Time consuming (development)Reflection Difficult to useInteraction Affordances (Gibson) Costly to produce All "action possibilities" latent in an environmentt…Dialogue Time consuming (support) but always in relation to the actor and thereforeCreativity dependent on their Assessment issues capabilities.Organisation For instance, a tall tree Lack of interactivity offers the affordances of food for a Giraffe but not aInquiry Difficult to navigate sheep.Authenticity New literacy skills
  12. 12. Ativity: Mapping affordances• Think of a learning activity, e.g. – Aggregating a set of class resources – Collaborating on a group report – Presenting evidence of learning• Choose three technologies• Identify their affordances to support the learning activity• Decide which technology to use
  13. 13. • Means of dealing with real learning contexts• Iterative: design, implementation, evaluation, refine• Gives rich insights into complex dynamics
  14. 14. Problem and solution• Teachers want – Examples of good practice – Others to talk to• Solution – Social networking site – Best of web 2.0 – Iterative design and evaluation http://cloudworks.ac.uk
  15. 15. Problem and solution• Teachers want – Help with design – Ways to represent designs• Solution – Design representations to guide and make design explicit
  16. 16. Activity: Course Features Purpose: To consider the features you want to include in your module/course, which will determine not only the look and feel of the course, but also the nature of the learners’ experience. Linoit canvasE-tivity Rubric: http://tinyurl.com/SPEED-e4
  17. 17. Activity: Course MapPurpose: To start mapping out your module/course, including your plans for guidance andsupport, content and the learner experience, reflection and demonstration, andcommunication and collaboration.E-tivity Rubric: http://tinyurl.com/SPEED-e5
  18. 18. Activity: Activity Profile Purpose: To consider the balance of activity types that will be included in your module/course. Activity Profile Flash WidgetE-tivity Rubric: http://tinyurl.com/SPEED-e6
  19. 19. Activity: Storyboard Purpose: To develop a storyboard for your module/course in which the learning outcomes are aligned with the assessment events, topics (contents) and e-tivities. Linoit CanvasE-tivity Rubric: http://tinyurl.com/SPEED-e8

  22. 22. Resource-based learning• Over ten years of the Open Educational Resource (OER) movement• Hundreds of OER repositories worldwide• Presence on iTunesU
  23. 23. The OPAL metromapEvaluation shows lack of uptakeby teachers and learnersShift from development tocommunity building andarticulation of OER practice http://www.oer-quality.org/
  24. 24. POERUP outputs• An inventory of more than 100 OER initiatives http://poerup.referata.com/wiki/Countries_with_OER_initiatives• 11 country reports and 13 mini-reports http://poerup.referata.com/wiki/Countries• 7 in-depth case studies• 3 EU-wide policy papers
  25. 25. Differences in education, internet, e-learning• Diversity of educational contexts• Diversity of internet provision Country Internet (in 2011) Broadband (in 2011) Australia 87% 83% UK 73% 71% Italy 62% 52% Hungary 66% 61%• Diversity of use of e-learning – Distance Learning is a feature of educational system, Canada and Australia – State of e-learning below EU average, Hungary
  26. 26. Emergent themes• Shift from development to OER practices• Shift from basic OER awareness to OER maturity and embedding• Broader notion of open practices – open learning, teaching and research• Use of social and participatory media to foster OER communities
  27. 27. Statement 1: OER will have a major impacton students learning in the next five years. • I agree • I disagree • Undecided
  28. 28. Statement 2: OER are better quality thancommercially published textbooks. • I agree • I disagree • Undecided
  29. 29. Statement 3: I will use more OER in myteaching/learning in future. • I agree • I disagree • Undecided
