We’re delighted to announce our first batch of design patterns are here!
Design patterns make hidden knowledge explicit and shareable. They are a tool to communicate practical educational strategies. Our first batch of patterns are solutions we’ve tried and tested as part of the CLaS project. They cover topics including: creating self-paced online modules, teaching design thinking online, object-based learning at scale, running a live Q&A online and scheduling tutorials all in a day. Each pattern includes examples of how they were implemented in a specific context in a unit of study.
You can access the patterns in a special section of the blog. Get there via the ‘Categories’ drop-down menu on the top right of the screen, where you will see CLaS Design Patterns.
New patterns will debut in a rolling release over the coming weeks and months. We aim to build up a living repository of useful solutions to common problems of teaching at scale. So, please stay tuned! And, if you try out a pattern in your practice, please leave a comment below. We’d love to hear your feedback as we continue to grow this resource.
