This practical session will give an overview of the work of the JISC-funded Open University Learning Design Initiative (OULDI) at the Open University and with our four partner universities: Brunel, London South Bank, Reading and Cambridge. The project sees 'learning design' as an all encompassing term to cover the process, representation, sharing and evaluation of designs from individual learning activities, right up to whole curriculum level designs. We see learning design as a conscious, creative and social activity, where tools, representations and resources of learning design can be used to frame, guide and mediate discourse between academic programme teams, support units, students and employers. There will be opportunity both to consider how the approach might be used in an HS&P setting, and to participate in a short collaborative learning design activity.
