Competencies for Learning Design: A Review of the Literature and a Proposed Framework
MacLean, Piers; Scott, Bernard
British Journal of Educational Technology, v42 n4 p557-572 Jul 2011
The term "learning design" is used in this paper to refer to the process of designing effective learning experiences for a variety of contexts: in the classroom or laboratory, in the field, online and via standalone packages using a range of media. Learning design involves a wide set of knowledge, skills and competencies, including: learning theory and its applications, course design principles and procedures, use of media, use of different technologies, relevant business processes and so on. This paper briefly introduces a research project that investigated the field of learning design in the UK and elsewhere, and describes the production of a competency framework derived from the results of that research.
