I’ve pinched this title from some of the work on formative assessment. It is quite expressive of what I want to say.
I remain interested at the role commonly referred to as Educational Design with the two alternative titles:
- instructional designer (more behavourist overtones maybe)
- learning designer (a recent term)
I spent some time earlier in 2009 interviewing some educational designers on the processes they used in their work.
What happens between getting the brief (or the design specification) and producing a design/conceptual design?
I also asked them to describe some of their successful projects.
It has been very interesting to see the common features that have been emerging.
I would like to do a few more interviews: so if you are interested, please get in touch with me. Usually 20-25 minutes in a cafe, or we could meet via Skype.
