Bennett, Sue; Agostinho, Shirley; Lockyer, Lori
Journal of Interactive Media in Education, v2016 n1 Article 9 2016
All university educators perform design work as they prepare and plan learning experiences for their students. How such design work is undertaken, conceptualised, and optimally supported is the focus of ongoing research for the authors. The purpose of this article is to present the results of a research study that sought to gain a richer understanding of university educators' design work; investigate how the idea of Learning Design could support design work; and examine how learning designs could be made available within a Learning Management System (LMS) as a design support tool. An overview of the outcomes from the entire research project is presented. The project's aims and outcomes and what was achieved are explained and potential future directions for this area of research are discussed.
