Using Pattern Languages to Mediate Theory-Praxis Conversations in Design for Networked Learning
Goodyear, Peter; de Laat, Maarten; Lally, Vic
ALT-J: Research in Learning Technology, v14 n3 p211-223 Sep 2006
Educational design for networked learning is becoming more complex but also more inclusive, with teachers and learners playing more active roles in the design of tasks and of the learning environment. This paper connects emerging research on the use of design patterns and pattern languages with a conception of educational design as a conversation between theory and praxis. We illustrate the argument by drawing on recent empirical research and literature reviews from the field of networked learning. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
