Research project description

Ph.D. Project: CSCL in higher education: Design approaches using patterns and pattern languages

My Ph.D. Project focuses on Educational design in Higher Education.One of the main focus is to capture the teachers' conceptions of the task design and how is it interpreted by students. I am expecting to design pattern language for CSCL around teachers' task design concepts and assist them with better understanding of design process by providing them with feedback from students. For further details pl email me

For more information on my project pl click Here

Just email me a brief description of how you design your tasks (assessment tasks or any other task you design for students)what you do, or send me a copy of the material you use with students that tells them what you expect them to do. You can also post your experience to me through my blog on Educational design in HE
