About the Learning Design SIG
Welcome to the ASCILITE Learning Design Special Interest Group.
The Learning Design SIG is intended to be a resource and network for academics and professionals who are responsible for, and interested in, learning design. Our focus is to provide a platform for members to come together in a supportive collegial and collaborative environment. We aim to do this through providing opportunities for professional development activities, structured exchange of ideas, sharing of good practices, and discussion of issues and trends that affect learning design.
Learning design includes designing tasks, materials, tools and other artefacts, learning spaces, group structures and other such divisions of labour. It helps bring into being the epistemic, physical and social phenomena, which situate students’ learning activity (Carvalho & Goodyear, 2014; Goodyear, 2005, 2015).
