If an effective learning design could be transferred across into another discipline, then good teaching and learning practice could be shared between them. Effective learning designs promote student engagement, productive learning and optimise student retention (Scott, 2005). The aim of this study was to establish whether academics and educational designers considered effective learning designs could be used to introduce different teaching and learning approaches to different disciplines. The results from this pilot study indicate that the introduction of different teaching and learning approaches to different disciplines in this way is not only feasible but it will also facilitate the promotion of quality teaching and learning throughout the higher education sector.
