Professor James Dalziel used his Australian Teaching and Learning Council National Teaching Fellowship Success factors for implementing Learning Design to meet with international experts to develop a new conceptual model for the future of Learning Design, named “The Larnaca Declaration on Learning Design”. This model provides guidance for implementing Learning Design to improve teaching and learning in higher education, including discussion of how Learning Design contributes to related areas such as graduate attributes, curriculum planning, the use of technology in education and massive open online courses (MOOCs).
Information about the “Larnaca Declaration on Learning Design” is available from: www.larnacadeclaration.org
The fellowship also supported a set of workshops across Australia about practical implementation of Learning Design, including examples of generic teaching strategies and discipline specific examples. Participant responses to these workshops indicated a growing interest in the field of Learning Design, and it is expected that the practical adoption of Learning Design in higher education will continue into the future.
