The potential of information, communication technology enhanced learning and teaching (ICTELT) is under-utilised even though numerous process models and frameworks are available. Barriers to using many existing models include resource expectations, experience, skills requirements and ‘ownership’ of a project. I have been working on a process model and framework (http://efest2008collaboratingbydesign.pbwiki.com), adapted from earlier examples, developed to help answer the question “Where do I start?” for practitioners who are unfamiliar with adapting education resources to make effective use of ICTELT. Employing a scaffolded approach appropriate for working in small teams, or as individuals, the guiding questions form the foundation for collaborative discussion of design choices, ICT tool selection, and the incorporation of a range of pedagogical approaches with a variety of tools. The model and framework can be used with new and/or existing programmes, modules, units, sessions, or learning objects, but initially practitioners are encouraged to trial the process on a small scale. I am very keen to receive feedback about the ICTELT model and framework, and to share ideas around helping practitioners and teams to design and develop ICTELT programmes.
