The Learning Design Timeline is a collection of important components that together have contributed to the formation of the field of Learning Design. It all started with a few ideas, publications and presentations which captured the imagination of those who started to share a common vision about designing for learning. Gradually, new initiatives, design of new tools and the emergence of a consistent thinking pattern have nurtured the growth of communities that started to use the new methodology in practice. The timeline attempts to capture the history of all this, identify the authors who contributed to the rise of the new discipline and the relationship between all components that make up what Larnaca Declaration calls Learning Design.
This blog is intended to present useful information but also to stimulate discussions and feedback, so that the timeline is continuously improved to contain high quality information based on the participation of knowledgeable contributors. Each information unit is described in a dedicated blog post which can be updated with corrections or additional information as necessary. Pages have summaries of each category of components (such as Events, Initiatives, etc.) with links to blog posts. If you want to find a particular author or event use the search function to find it.
