Please join us for our Third International Learning Design Challenge: Move-It-Online
Led by Professor Diana Laurillard from The London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education in collaboration with Building Community Knowledge, MirandaNet, Creative Digital Solutions and Hands-ON ICT project.
Our 3rd online International Learning Design Challenge is about understanding the impact of taking teaching and learning activities online. We will provide ways of describing and planning effective teaching ideas, especially those that illustrate ‘pedagogically purposeful uses of technology for learning’. The Challenge is to transfer this to your own optimal way to move it online.

the Learning Designer, for designing, sharing and reviewing learning experiences that may be conventional, blended, or wholly online;
the Course Resource Appraisal Model (CRAM), for planning and estimating the learning benefits and teaching costs for a session or module, that may be conventional, blended, or wholly online.

MirandaNet are partners in the third pilot of the free EU Handson ICT MOOC ( Massive Online Open course). On the 27th of October we will launch the third edition of the Learning Design Studio for ICT-based Learning Activities MOOC. The course will last 5 weeks and a group of facilitators will support you in the task of designing your own learning activities and lessons. The course will be offered in six languages: English, Spanish, Catalan, Greek, Slovenian and French.
The features of the course are:
- A focus on the Learning Design Studio (LDS) approach, a design process to help educators design courses and learning activities.
- Facilitators from several countries with expertise in Online Learning, Creativity and the Learning Design Studio who will work with participants to explore the potential of this learning method to introduce ICT in the teaching and learning processes.
- The opportunity to observe, practice and learn with other educators about methods for peer review and peer mentoring.
- The creation of practical artefacts that can be reused by educators in their actual classrooms or learning scenarios
- The use of specific tools to support the process of learning design: ILDE, Learning Designer and ODS
