#H807 E-learning models and their implications for activity design

Copyright: Oliver Merkel

With the submission of TMA03 focus in H807 shifts to the design of e-tivities (Salmon, 2000).  The ultimate block starts with a study of the theoretical foundations that underpin activity design explicitly or, more often, implicitly, as pedagogic assumptions.  The key text is a review of e-learning theories by Mayes and de Freitas (2004), complemented with e-books from Terry Anderson (2008) and Peter Goodyear (2001).

  1. Hi Stefaan

    Great summing up and a helpful table. I like the way you have described Activity Theory as bridge between situative learning and constructivist approaches. I'll remember that next time I try and explain AT to someone (which happens every day obviously) :-)

  2. Thanks, developing this table revealed how many design guidelines can be attributed to different pedagogic theories. Engestrom's work remains quite abstract for me still, should read some more about it, in order to being able to explain it better (indeed happens every day) -;)
