The two sides of design… Designer Student Outcomes Tasks Assessment Learning through activities
Learning Design How do we create pedagogically more effective learning activities which make better use of technologies? How do people generate a new learning activities? How are learners guided through learning activities?
Design strategies Problem: What specific problem do you want to address? Learning outcomes: What do you want the students to achieve? Pedagogy: What pedagogical principles do you want to emphasis? Activities: What do you want the students to do? Tools: What tools do you want to use? Resources: What resources do you want to use? Assessment: What do you want to assess and how?
Learner guidance Overall : Overall look, feel and structure? Approaches: Tailored to different student needs Media: Mixed media presentation- for variety, interest, emphasis… Activities: How are these presented? Individual or group based? Timing and mix? Tools: Which tools, when and what do they do with them? Resources: What resources do they use? Core, support, extension? Scaffolding: Notes, tip, hints, further guidance
