Reflections on what I'm learning

Extra content


What have I learnt about Learning Design?

  • A way of communicating the organisation of a session or course
  • Not sure if technology is essential
  • It is pedagogy agonistic
  • A lot is up in the air

Felt I’ve learnt more about myself than about learning design.

  • I need structure (and so I think do my students)
  • Reminded me how scary it can be starting a new subject
  • Too many new ideas (could argue that perhaps they shouldn’t be new) for my brain to process and make a model out of.
  • This is the first time I’ve done an online course, and I feel disconnected (it’s the lonely in a crowd scenario)
  • Need to chat about ideas in real time, not on a forum, which is far too exposed and asynchronous.
  • Too many technologies to learn make it hard to think

Week 2

more acronyms EOR ZPD ZPA ZAA

need to find how context works alongside diversity

Seems useful but  a lot of work to find out EOR, how fixed is it?

how about getting each student to examine their own EOR during induction each year?
