Learning Design

Learning design is the process of designing learning experiences, including planning, structuring, and sequencing, through facilitated activities that are student-centred, inclusive and accessible, pedagogically informed and aim to promote better use of technologies in teaching.


ELDeR is a practical, team-based approach to learning design. It involves a two-day, intensive, collaborative workshop, at the end of which the course team goes away with a detailed blueprint of the course and a comprehensive action plan. At its heart is the student learning experience, where student feedback and assessment literacies are given top priority, and a shared vision of the course/programme is developed between team members.
