Workshop at ECIL

This workshop illustrates how a digital tool, the Learning Designer, facilitates a new way of designing teaching and learning. It enables teachers to: build on the work of others, adopt and adapt learning designs, analyze and test their designs, and then share their own teaching ideas and experience using the tool.
