New strategies for e-learning design: Harnessing technology for flexibility and engagement

Presenter Prof. Diana Laurillard, Head of the e-Learning Strategy Unit, UK Government's Department for Education and Skills and Visiting Professor, Open University

Abstract One of the key priorities in the UK Government's new e-strategy for education is to stimulate greater innovation in e-learning design. To accelerate the development of next generation e-learning, the focus should be less on content-centered design and more on design flexibility for teaching learners. Flexible learning design packages would enable teachers to build their own individual and collaborative learning activities around digital resources helping them engage in design discussions about transforming pedagogy. The presentation will look at existing pilots of these resources and consider the challenges they present to teachers and leaders, as well as designers.
