This ALTC-sponsored project demonstrated that generic learning designs can serve as pedagogical frameworks to support academic staff in creating new learning experiences. It explored the issues to emerge from the implementation of learning designs and identified barriers to their widespread adoption and ways of overcoming them. These findings underpin the implementation of learning design templates which address these adoption challenges in their design and streamlines the planning process. The templates can be used by academic staff to tailor exemplary examples to meet the individual lecturer’s, and/or course co-ordinator’s, particular requirements, whilst providing them with the underlying pedagogical principals involved in the learning design.
