thanks to all authors for this excellent Symposium - exciting to see how fast this field is moving.

Grainne, I'm enjoying these posts from NZ - so much activity - a brainSTORM literally - great to be able to observe! All the best for remainder of the conference,

Hi Claire

would welcome your thoughts on this. I think this is a really interesting symposium and that we are now starting to see some great connections between these different areas of work.

Embedded slideshares may not be the latest versions that are on slideshare, for some reason there seems to be a delay in this. I have replace presentation for the overview and paper 1 for example.

thanks Grainne - I have just had another look at the new presentation slides for your overview. Really interested in the shift you portray in the "approaches to learning design" slide from beliefs to explicit practice, and the connections you demonstrate between the different types of learning design representations in later slides. The course dimensions at the macro level, and other design representations at the meso and mico levels are very helpful for our current work with the HEART LD support strategy. Comparing beliefs, intentions and actions (Pratt and Collins) I think is another fruitful avenue to explore when comparing design representations with actual outcomes for both teachers and learners. Perhaps the Masters programme you  describe at OU offers opportunities for investigation on these questions?

Emprical validation is an area we're about to embark on too (for our pedagogical dimensions). We are still searching for the "Holy Grail" of  a set of validated pedagogical dimensions that we can adopt and use as a basis for the HEART tools to save us having to go down this road. There is much scope for postgraduate research here.
