Learning design approaches can structure informed decision-making concerning tools, activities and pedagogy. In addition, they can make our design problems and solutions explicit so that they can be more effectively shared with our learners and peers. They can support significant increases in effectiveness, innovation, productivity and quality of teaching and learning practices. However, the challenges and issues associated with embedding these approaches into practice are complex and multi-faceted – both for individuals and institutions (see Beetham and Sharpe 2007; Lockyer et al. 2008 edited collections; and Conole 2009). In this short paper we will review how the Open University Learning Design Initiative (OULDI) methodology has been introduced to five different UK HE institutions with a focus on the approaches and tools that were used, and the challenges identified in those settings. We will indicate ways in which these challenges are being addressed through a series of co-created and contextualised interventions, and provide a brief review of initial findings. In addition we will introduce the project’s open toolbox (approaches, tools and resources).
