Learning Design – The Project

An Example of a Learning Design Sequence

The project evolved a graphical representation mechanism to describe and document the generic learning design foci in terms of the tasks, resources and supports that would be required in the learning setting. This mechanism was later applied to contextualised designs.

A ‘Learning Design Sequence’ representation uses the following graphical notation:

  • Squares represent Tasks.
  • Triangles represent Resources.
  • Circles represent Supports.

Here is an example describing one particular (contextualised) learning design. (Note that POE = “Predict – Observe – Explain”):

 

 

The project team considers the Learning Design Sequence construct could be a form of documentation to serve as a “standard”/”common” communication mechanism to explain and illustrate different kinds of learning designs. Most

Introduction to Line in Interior Design

• Horizontal Lines: Weighty, secure, restful, stabilizing.

Horizontal lines suggest a solid, harmonious relationship with the Earth; this gives a stabilizing, peaceful harmonious effect to window treatments for example. When found in a connecting architectural detail such as mouldings, horizontal lines provide a smooth transition between rooms or areas. If they lead to a focal point, they help to emphasize it.

Too many horizontal lines in an interior may become boring and lack visual interest. Horizontal lines make a room appear wider or longer.

• Vertical Lines: Lofty, solid, formal, imposing, restrained. 

Vertical lines lift the eye upward and make windows, and sometimes, entire interiors, appear taller or higher. They have the ability to lift the mind and the spirit as well. As such, vertical lines are purposeful tools for architects and designers of churches and public buildings because they inspire
