Third International Learning Design Challenge: Move-It-Online



Led by Professor Diana Laurillard from The London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education in collaboration with Building Community Knowledge, MirandaNet, Creative Digital Solutions and Hands-ON ICT project.



The Aim

Our 3rd online International Learning Design Challenge is about understanding the impact of taking teaching and learning activities online. We will provide ways of describing and planning effective teaching ideas, especially those that illustrate ‘pedagogically purposeful uses of technology for learning'. The Challenge is to transfer this to your own optimal way to move it online.

The Challenge

Our Move-it Online challenge is to invite you to design and plan for the optimal use of learning technology in your own context, with the help of two new tools for teachers:

  • The Learning Designer, for designing, sharing and reviewing learning experiences that may be conventional, blended, or wholly online;
  • The Course Resource Appraisal Model (CRAM), for planning and estimating the learning benefits and teaching costs for a session or module, that may be conventional, blended, or wholly online.


Overview of the Schedule

  1. Starts 30th October for introductions and starter packs with your plan for each week
  2. Live online events from 1:00-1:45 pm (UK time): November 3rd, 10th, 17th,21st, 24th and December 1st
  3. Live online discussion forums from 1 pm Thursday 13th November from 1:00 pm

16th What the Research Says Event: The Potential and Impact of TEL on Teaching and Learning

Where: London Knowledge Lab

Time: 1:30-4:00

When: Friday 26th September 2014

Please see the attached document for the speaker and demo list (details available below as well): The Potential and Impact of TEL on Teaching and Learning

In March 2012 we launched the first what the research says event. A short discussion document titled "Technology can help us learn faster, better, deeper ..." formed part of the event. Where are we now? Perhaps there are more questions than answers but evidence is emerging showing us where the right kind of context of use of technology does illustrate impact on learning. But what is the right kind of context of use? Can this knowledge be shared?

This what the research event explores, discusses and debates: how can teachers use old and new learning technology to drive learning innovation and discover what works and why? What is the potential and impact of technology on teaching and learning experience? What is the evidence that pedagogies using technology help us learn any better? What are students' expectations of learning through technology? How might we facilitate students to reflect on the role of technology when learning?

The event will include presentations, demos and discussions to exchange experiences of the challenges faced in education, and to test how well and where technology help teachers to discover and create innovative learning experiences. And what is the view of the students? Are they equipped to get the best out of this kind of learning?
