1 UNFOLD UNDERSTANDING NEW FRAMEWORKS OF LEARNING DESIGN NEEDS and OBJECTIVES Current situation –eLearning standards have addressed interoperability rather than pedagogy –A key recent eLearning specification, IMS-LD is of European origin. –Unfolding of standards is a lengthy process Key UNFOLD objective: To accelerate the adoption, implementation, use and further development of open standards that: –support multiple as well as single learners –support a wide range of present, as well as future, pedagogical models Coordinating action: Jan Dec 2005

2 UNFOLD UNDERSTANDING NEW FRAMEWORKS OF LEARNING DESIGN WHAT WE INTEND TO DO Support Communities of Practice –Specification developers; System & tools developers –Course authors & Learning designers –Learning providers These on-going activities combined with: –3-monthly small workshops –6-monthly plenary sessions –Originating studies and disseminating best practice Two phases –Awareness raising and CoPs establishment (initial 6 months) –CoP facilitation, workshops, sessions, studies (18 months following) –Sustainability plan at the end.

3 UNFOLD UNDERSTANDING NEW FRAMEWORKS OF LEARNING DESIGN WHY WE ARE DOING IT A European opportunity: OUNL EML became IMS Learning Design. To achieve real impact emerging standards need tools examples originating best practices, Feedback to tools developers and specifications bodies from course authors, learning providers and teachers. UNFOLD supports and coordinates this activity: facilitation of Communities of Practice, supporting events, articulating and disseminating results

4 UNFOLD UNDERSTANDING NEW FRAMEWORKS OF LEARNING DESIGN WHAT WE EXPECT AS RESULTS Build on existing SIGs and networks to achieve wider and more active Communities of Practice Articulate and promote tools development at different levels, with feedback to improve specifications Articulate and promote creation of a wide variety of learning designs, to support best educational practice, with feedback to developers and specifications

5 UNFOLD UNDERSTANDING NEW FRAMEWORKS OF LEARNING DESIGN WHO WE ARE AND CONTACTS Partners: F-UPF (C), OUNL, Bolton Institute (CETIS), EUCEN Initial groups: Valkenburg group, CETIS SIGs, others Dai Griffiths and Josep Blat (F-UPF) {david.griffiths, UNFOLD website We look forward to your participation!
