Introduction to the Learning Designer learningdesigner.org (BETA Version)

The Learning Designer suite of tools enables teachers to share their good teaching ideas. It is intended to help a subject teacher see how a particular pedagogic approach can be migrated successfully across different topics.

  • There are sample patterns to browse and edit, or you can design your own from scratch.
  • ‘Browser' offers a collection of pedagogical patterns, which you can redesign for your own teaching practice.
  • ‘Designer' presents the pedagogical pattern template to help you describe your own teaching idea for a session (e.g. student preparation, class activities and homework).
