Social and mobile technologies offer learners unprecedented opportunities to create, organise, share and access knowledge. Such technologies effect potent learning environments, yet these are constantly shifting with escalating complexity. In order for teachers to effectively orchestrate learning within this landscape a change of mindset is needed. Educators need to perceive themselves, and indeed to be perceived by society, as techno-pedagogical designers.

The aim of the proposed theme team is to produce a concise, comprehensive and accessible set of resources which will empower educators and learners to participate in a global design-level conversation on technology enhanced learning (TEL). These resources will enable learners and educators to collaboratively reflect on their goals and constraints, characterise contexts of learning, and devise viable means of achieving their goals within these contexts and in light of the constraints.  The outputs of this effort will include:

  • An annotated mapping of representations of design knowledge in TEL, such as narratives, patterns and principles, scripts, scenarios, and sequences.
  • A review of existing banks of design resources and tools.
  • An articulation of effective and accessible design practices and methodologies for collaborative reflection on the practice of learning design.
  • A practitioner guide for utilising the above resources.

The members of the theme team represent long and rich histories of scientific formalisations of design knowledge in TEL. The critical innovation of the proposed initiative is a focus on consolidating these histories and articulating them in such a way that will make them available to the widest community.
