From Design patterns for learning

Thanks Jim for setting up this community. I hope there are others in the Emerge network who are interested in pursuing this subject. For me patterns are a very intuitive and effective way of communicating what we know about successful design - whether it be in architecture, user interfaces or indeed learning. I'm very interested in exploring how we might use patterns within the e-Framework and develop mechanisms for mining or harvesting learning patterns. (I use those terms deliberately - like Alexander I think patterns are out there - they can be abstracted from examples of things that work - they are therefore not "made up" as such but "collected" in some way from the domain of interest).

Looking forward to talking to you and others more about this.

Definitely something I've been interested in for a long time. I created a pattern language for Personal Learning Environments some time back which I'm now revisting and substantially rewriting: patterns are very easy and intuitive to use, but not quite so easy to write!
