The art and science of learning design - new ALT journal supplement

Research in Learning Technology, the journal of the Association for Learning Technology, has been Open Access since 1 January 2012 and is published by Co-Action Publishing.
“Art and Science of Learning Design” is the journals first supplement since going Open Access and is edited by Brock Craft (University of London), Davinia Hernández-Leo (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona) and Yishay Mor (Open University).

This supplement consists of papers developed from the proceedings of the Art and Science of Learning Design (ASLD) workshop in 2011. This workshop was convened by the Learning Design Grid (LDG) team of the STELLAR network of excellence, dedicated to bridging the gap between research and practice in Learning Design. It set out to explore the tools, methods, and frameworks available for practitioners and researchers invested in designing for learning, and to articulate the challenges in this emerging domain.
