  13. 13. Action Learning Cycle How does it work? I consider my learning & unlearning needs I design my next I design projects to action learning cycle Each cycle deliver these needs with the benefit of produces a and stay alert for my new learnings & Design Packet unpredicted learnings unlearnings & unlearnings I reflect on my learnings & fully document the project’s outcomes and processes
  14. 14. Design Packet How does it work? Example Design Packet (posted online with shared software) Design Project 05 - Forest Garden 1. Project Brief (Goals & Client Interview) 2. Site Analysis (Base maps, soils, water, etc) 3. Design - Drawings & Details - Design description • Learning Reflections: - Implementation plan - What went well? 4. Implementation evidence - What could be 5. Evaluation of Design improved? • Self-Evaluation
  15. 15. Design Packet Technology How does it work? • Posted online with shared software • At first, use Gaia University E-Learning site (GEL) • Peer review becomes possible • Public display of best work spreads Example Design Packet permaculture meme Design Project 05 - Forest Garden • Export publishable 1.
