Pattern Workshop: Making Stuff Together, London Knowledge Lab, 7th July

Posted by yishaym on June 13, 2008

The Pattern Language Network project (Planet) is running a one day workshop at the London Knowledge Lab, 7th July, around the theme of “Making Stuff Together“.

The purpose of this workshop is to look across dramatically different contexts of learning, and identify common elements of design: forces, contextual factors, challenges and methods of solution.

In this workshop we will focus on two environments: Multi-user virtual worlds (MUVEs) and collaborative web documents. At a first glance, these appear to be as different and unrelated as two on-line environments can be. Yet both are loci for activities of shared construction. It is this quality, and this tension, which we wish to explore as a driver of learning.

The workshop will be driven by user contributed case studies. These cases will be discussed in cross disciplinary groups, through which design patterns will be extracted and elaborated and scenarios developed.
