Workshop template: LD ‘Lite’

This workshop template is based around a number of short introductions, activities and reflections exploring the theme: Using Technologies in Teaching. We call it Learning Design ‘Lite’ because although it uses the OULDI methodology the theory of Learning Design is not explicitly discussed. Please feel free to use and adapt this template and tell us how you find it

The aims of the workshop are:

  1. To give participants an overview of new technologies and how they can be used
  2. To give participants the chance to critically review the affordances of technologies and their use in different contexts
  3. To enable them to reflect on the relevance and application to their own practice
  4. Exposure to a range of Learning Design tools and approaches

This workshop was first developed by the OULDI team for theĀ  Design-Practice project (
