3.4.6 & 5.1.2: Diana Laurillard at ALT-C

A session at the 2009 ALT-C in Manchester by Dianna Laurillard discusses, in part, how wikis, blogs and forums; virtual adaptive immersive environments; and user-generated content sites sit within the Conversational Framework. The Elluminate session (available here) is concerned with learning design from a practical perspective, going beyond principles of good teaching. For me, the CF has always been a useful model for contextualising formal education; it is an excellent foundation for practice as well.

Some excellent discussion and illustrations relating to instructional design here, too... but there is still work to be done to assist with finer distinctions between different learning approaches.

Sorry that this is unrelated, I'm trying to find a Mark Nichols whose poem I heard on a radio station in the Hudson Valley while driving. Is this he? If so, please contact me at ekemble1@gmail.com. Thank you.

Sorry but I am no poet
If I were I'd surely show it
Good luck as you seek him out
If I find I'll surely shout.

;o)

This is fascinating.
I’d been taught that left-aligned labels are preferred, to support the prototypical F-shaped eye-tracking heatmap of web browsing. The idea is that it supports easy vertical scanning.
