Journal of Learning Design

a new educational journal which moves beyond a focus on technological applications in educational settings, to encourage more critical analysis of approaches to the design of learning environments and the extent to which they result in enhanced learning outcomes for learners. Traditional, didactic, delivery-focussed models of teaching in higher education still prevail, whether in the lecture theatre or in the online environment.
The Journal of Learning Design will play an important role in raising awareness of how to move beyond such transmission models of education, to the design of more active, collaborative, authentic and engaging learning experiences for learners.
The Journal of Learning Design aims to provide a forum for critical debate and professional exchange about models, theoretical positioning and best practice in learning design.

I am a professional learner, employed as a Full Professor and Associate Dean, Learning & Assessment, at Athabasca University, where I research lots of things broadly in the area of learning and technology, and I teach mainly in the School of Computing & Information Systems. I am a proud Canadian, though I was born in the UK. I am married, with two grown-up children, and three growing-up grandchildren. We all live in beautiful Vancouver.
