Learning design

Learning Design is a process that helps us bring together the Australian Curriculum and the pedagogy of the SA Teaching for Effective Learning Framework (TfEL). In this section we explore the six key ideas that underpin Learning Design, to improve learner engagement through personalising and connecting the learning, and designing for intellectual challenge to achieve improved outcomes – academic and learner disposition.

The Learning Design six questions have been created for teachers working together in teams or professional learning communities (PLC) to plan learning experiences for students.
