A Blueprint for Designing Creativity into Learning Design

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We present the development of the Digital Learning Design Framework and Toolkit, a Teesside University project supported by Jisc UK. Our ambition is to support course teams across learning organisations to develop a vision of how they can integrate digital solutions to future-proofing learning and teaching experience. We are strong advocates that changing the technology does not change the behaviour. Instead, proving the value (to staff and their students) changes the behaviour. Good learning design can help address this. Impactful learning design must help teaching staff to reimagine their academic practice in order to achieve success in the student experience. The pace of change at institutional level should not outpace the cultural change in academic practice. As such, through the use of the toolkit, we anticipate that course teams will begin to reimagine their academic practice and teaching. The key learning design principles of the toolkit will allow courses to be designed to embed creativity, resilience, and adaptability into subject disciplines and by reimagining how assessments are designed, this will help prepare students to tackle grand challenges in the world through a broad curriculum, supported by personalised learning opportunities through digital tools and adaptive assessments and feedback.
