Designing for Learning in Course Teams
ByRHONA SHARPE, MARTIN OLIVER
Pages 14

This chapter begins our exploration of design as a highly contextualized process by examining the role of the course and the course team in designing for learning. The authors argue that understanding how course design occurs is crucial to our being able to apply the principles and use the tools that were presented in Part I. They show that although educational rationales and design tools are available, the reality of making the designs real within a course is a complex process. As well as describing what is known about how course teams operate, they draw on evaluations of staff development interventions to offer advice for supporting staff through the process of designing for technology-enhanced courses.
