Of gurus and godfathers: Learning design in the networked age

David Eddy Spicer, J Huang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Educators in a school of architectural design and researchers in a school of education explore the design of learning and the learning of design in this networked age. Their discussion revolves around a course on computer-aided design and the introduction and use of Eventspaces, an experimental, online "neighborhood" for the students in the course. The conversation reveals how frameworks oriented towards improving educational practice—in this instance, a set of concepts known as Teaching for Understanding—hold the potential of offering a common language to probe the impact of innovation and point the way towards redesign. It also shows how reference to more than one framework may be essential to explore fully new arenas of educational practice.
