About the Learning Design SIG
The Learning Design Special lnterest Group (LD SIG) aims to develop a supportive environment for learning design researchers and learning designers in Australia and beyond who are engaged in, or wish to engage with the emerging field of Learning Design. The LD SIG aims to foster collegial exchange and collaborative LD research and sharing of practice in order to improve technology-enhanced learning and teaching in higher education, K-12 and vocational education. Members may include those with interests in LD and allied fields, such as Learning Analytics.
The SIG is underpinned by the Learning Design network that authored the ‘Larnaca Declaration’ and the 2015 Routledge text: Learning Design: Conceptualising a Framework for Teaching and Learning Online. The objective of the SIG is to provide a focal point of structured exchange of ideas and research by its members.
The SIG aims to provide an avenue for capacity building and knowledge sharing in support of collaborative research activities and consolidation of ideas.
