The First International LAMS Conference: Designing the Future of Learning

Pedagogical Planning Meeting


As a complementary event to the 2007 European LAMS Conference, Diana Laurillard (London Knowledge Lab, University of London) and James Dalziel (Macquarie University and the LAMS Foundation) hosted a roundtable discussion of “pedagogic planners” at London Knowledge on Friday, 6th July.  For more information about London Knowledge Lab visit their website.

Pedagogic Planner Roundtable

The thought behind the roundtable was be able to bring together Learning Design experts from around the world to explore the concept of pedagogic planners, compare and contrast existing work in this field, and attempt to define future directions for research and implementation.
