Investigating university educators' design thinking and the implications for design support tools
The purpose of this chapter is to present the results of a research study that contributed across several aspects of learning design work -- namely to understand more about the nature of design work as part of the teaching cycle, to identify factors in the learning environment and how they influence design decisions, and how tools and specifications might support guidance, representation and sharing. The project was conducted by an Australian research team, with technical input from the Australian developers of a learning management system (Janison Solutions) and researchers from the Open University of the Netherlands.
