This presentation will discuss emergent issues and developments in the field of learning design. Although the presentation will have a UK bias, it will encompass developments from a wider global perspective. JISC CETIS supports the current JISC Design for Learning programme. This programme encompasses developments in learning design concerned with technical frameworks, tools, and pedagogy. Building and sustaining a community of practice is central to the support role CETIS is providing to the programme. This session will complement the overview provided by Glenaffric re ?Cultural and contextual challenges for practitioners from the JISC Design for Learning Programme? and will also discuss developments out with the JISC programme, namely European and Australian advancements in the learning design arena. Increasingly specifications such as IMS Content Packaging and Learning Design do appear to be at odds with developments in social software; how can web 2.0 collaborative technologies be integrated into the realm of learning design? There is still a need for interoperability, but perhaps now we need to move to thinking about looser couplings between content, activities and infrastructure and not aim to do everything by following one complex specification. As it currently stands, IMS LD deals primarily with formal education systems. This session will explore the potential for a learning design approach to cover informal learning. IMS LD is essentially a file format and does not dictate how the software should be structured; the technology must be informed by the pedagogy - pedagogic planners are emerging as a new and exciting area of development and the presenters will also cover recent developments in this area.
