Via the EMMA newsletter I read about the 7Cs of learning design, a conceptual framework that combines the Open University’s Learning Design Initiative with the Carpe Diem learning design workshops by the University of Leicester.
The 7Cs are grouped into four categories:
- Conceptualise (i.e what are you designing and why, who are you designing for?)
- Capture (in terms of capturing resources to be used and activities around Learner Generated Content)
- Communicate (mechanisms to foster communication)
- Collaborate (mechanisms to foster collaboration)
- Consider (activities to promote reflection and enable assessment)
- Combine (combining the activities to give a holistic overview of the design and associated learning pathways)
- Consolidate (in terms of running the design in a real learning context, evaluating, refining and sharing the design).
Each C has a set of Conceptual Learning Designs (CLDs) associated with it.
It looks like a useful model for learning design. The presentation below gives some more information.
