International Learning Designs Challenge: Reviewing Designs

Second International Learning Designs Challenge: Reviewing Designs

led by Professor Diana Laurillard

March 24th to 31st 2014

Welcome to our second International Learning Designs Challenge

First we would like to thank all who attended and contributed to our 1st International Learning Design Challenge. We now have many great learning designs for the community to share and use. The first Challenge was a great success and would not have been be possible without your contributions.

The 2nd International Learning Design Challenge week begins on 24 March and is focussed on ‘reviewing designs’. Many of us who submitted designs did not either complete or receive a review. For those who did, it was clearly a valuable experience, so it is worth having this focus for the new Challenge.

Prior to the launch of the 2nd Challenge the Coursesites session will have a Forum for ‘Introductions’, where participants can introduce themselves and the context in which they work.

To get started on you using the learning designer tool both registering for the tool and videos: Getting Started
