Some abridged thoughts from Alan Masson of the Viewpoints Project (University of Ulster) around the need to identify worksflows and identifying the key areas of interoperability (in terms of data and tools) .
"Taking the curriculum doc at the centre (which is localised in structure in each institution), theer are a number of complimentary workflows - info sources...
curiculum planning (viewpoints and the ldse with viewpoints more at the lite end of the info scale)
curriculum design (ldse probably is more centred on this element)
lesson planning (our HLM model and other examples fit here)
executable resources (LD models are more in this camp as the practice is superimposed with methods)
resource"lists" (remember these - natural accompaniment to curric documents)
public info about courses (XCRI etc.)
These are related more as a mindmap than a cycle / line tho. What is important is that there are small bit of info that overlap these info tool requirements. (things like strategic objectives, learning outcomes etc.) If we can identify and agree these, we could do some real good work, especially informing across the different phases. This type of interoperability is key as it impacts on planning (forward feed of info) and reflection / review (backwards feed of info)"
