The role of modelling in educational learning design
University of Sydney, Australia
Modelling in the Computer Science sense so far plays only a minor role in educational computing. In order to change this, not only do educational design and technology specialists gain a better understanding of modelling, but those involved in developing modelling methods and tools will have to understand the nature of educational design, and the challenges involved. My goal for this small lecture series is to provide for a basic understanding for the nature of design that is relevant to education (in particular, but not exclusively, higher education), to sketch the state of the art of modelling in learning design, and to identify challenges for a better integration of modelling into educational computing and design practices: the first lecture will focus on design patterns in education ; the second lecture will focus on formal approaches to modelling ; the third lecture will look a open research issues, and probe into the question of how to engage the educational design community with modelling methods and tools.
