To address this gap, we will lead an 8-10 week MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) in Learning Design, in Autumn 2012. The MOOC is aimed at researchers and practitioners in open and distance education, as well as educational practitioners in general. It will bring together some of the world’s leading researchers in Learning Design, and present participants with a broad choice of tools, practices, expert commenteries and theories which will inform their future work. In the course of this MOOC, participants will be exposed to the rationale and motivation for a learning design approach, the state of the art in the field, and the current grand challenges for research and practice. The will familiarise themselves with a variety of tools, methods and practices, and gain the skills to lead learning design initiatives in their context of practice.
This MOOC will cover:
- what is learning design and why should you care about it?
- the state of the art in learning design
- links to design based research, instructional design and other design disciplines (e.g. HCI)
- representations, tools, practices and methodologies
