The Pattern Language Network

Taming web2.0 in Higher Education


Posted by yishaym on January 18, 2008

In the Learning Patterns project, we drove the pattern language development by a series of workshops. As we discussed at the kickoff, it would seem valuable to replicate, refine and elaborate that strategy.

Part of the workshop methodology itself has been captured by a pattern, and there’s a set of videos demonstrating the process. There’s also a paper on the way. The workshop descriptions and calls can be used as a starting point for our own proposals. There’s a few conferences coming up which could offer good venues:

One Response to “Workshops?”

    EuroPLOP have announced a Thematic track on education so it is definitely worth us presenting there – I would suggest something about the methodology we are adopting as with a deadline of February we won’t have a lot of actual results by then. For workshops, we need to bear in mind that in this project our priority has to be the UK HE community so the first two would be the only ones that would be really appropriate. But I think we also need to be planning workshops specifically to target our user groups and the Emerge community – we certainly need to start thinking about dates for these.
