Use the post-it notes around the room to answer the following questions. Please answer the questions as fully as possible:

  • Have your objectives for the workshop been met?
  • What did you think of the format and content of the workshop?
  • What did you like about the session?
  • What could be improved?
  • What three  words would you use to describe the representations presented?
  • What 3 words would you use to describe Cloudworks?
  • What action points have you identified as a result of this workshop?

Extra content


  • Access to rich source of tools and liked the introduction to cloudworks
  • Useful workshop, good mix of activities, both halves were interesting, information. I think I will use the tools and the knowledge
  • Fine, both halves were useful (but separate)
  • Very useful, good mix of introduction to new ideas and activities
  • Balance of task-based and directed input, dividing up the time into clear pieces
  • Format good with opportunity to get hands on, content introductory
  • Two parts – good. First part ideas to take away – good. Second par – too much detail about cloudworks
  • The activity before the break could have been extended for the whole time, to get something really useful from it. Cloudworks can be done individually online after the session

  • New ideas, could discuss these with colleagues on how we could apply them
  • Fresh perspective on learning design
  • Concepts in cloudworks, resources available and also links on cloudworks
  • Cloudquest activity to get to know cloudworks was great J
  • AUTC learning designs activity part was very interesting
  • Excellent, very hands on
  • Hands on
  • Examples and models given, its great to have these to take away
  • Like the cloudworks site!
  • Provision of worksheets and websites and online tools
  • Good pace, links to review later, overall interesting.

Didn’t like, what could be improved

  • A bit too much in the time
  • Over emphasis on tools
  • Have computers already set up ready for participants on the web page (negates log on problems)
  • Cloudworks – introduction was about sharing learning designs, some good examples would have been useful (rather than just tools)
  • References to underlying research and evaluation studies
  • Section on cloudworks needs greater link to learning design
  • Would have been nice to play with CompendiumLD etc and other learning design representation tools
  • More discussion of different learning designs
  • Description of workshop misleading but content very valuable
  • Less cloudworks and more hands on with other tools shown
  • Could be improved: overview of learning design vs. instructional design, key tools that can be used by learning designers
  • Time factor possibly ambitious for worksheet input. Would have benefitted from more sharing of ideas before working on the worksheet
  • Don’t just present tools, without a chance to use them

Three words to describe the workshop and the representations

  • Too fast, useful good intro to info to further explore
  • Research-based, text and graphical, useful as models
  • Liked balance between generic and specific
  • Representations: liked first half representations, second half will go away and have a look

Three words to describe cloudworks

  • Conducive, collaborative, clarity
  • Clear, concise, communicative
  • Interesting, think bigger, open mind
  • Confusing!, captivating!, worth investigation (thorough!)
  • Clouds – useful resource, will follow!
  • Sharing, connecting, re-using
  • Like interactive delicious
  • Networking, more tool than content
  • Cloudworks bound

Action plan

  • Keep up the sharing!
  • Need to think more about representation of learning designs created
  • Can our logins stay active for more than 1 week in cloudworks ?Answer yes! Permanent!
  • Way too many to list!
  • Get into cloudworks to follow up ideas, explore learning designs
  • See how I can map the key concepts to what learning designs I do
  • Look at cloudworks, pedagogy profile use it to justify particular discipline approaches to learning
  • Links and opportunity to follow up more later
