Review and reflect on Week 3's activity and identify the progress you have made in your design this week. Questions you might like to think about include:

I'd love to offer some guidance on presentation - basic media training and some lessons in 'vision mixing'. Worth thinking about as I find the unnecessary flicking between screen sizes irritating and the ums and ahs and hesitations are painful. :( In this instance an edited transcript is going to be far more palatable.

For a visual learner like me I enjoyed to explore all LD tools and apply some to my project. Perhaps the creative part was to try other diagram tools such as Gliffy to structure my project in UML and workflow diagrams.
I liked Course Map in particular.
I think that LD methods and tools are useful for any teacher to plan learning units and/or resources.

1 - One of the benefits is in the production of the representation - in the thinking about and discussing it. The visual end products are useful too - a picture's worth a thousand words.
2. - more creatively than what? Yes, creating them was creative.
3. Liked the Map and the Activities profile as they were clear and easy to understand.
4. Both representations mentioned in 3 would be useful to students so they could get a good understanding of their course.

I really enjoyed working with these tools. I have used them in past course developments (I follow Grainne's work faithfully!) but felt your guidance this week helped me to work deeper with the tools. I, too, am very visual and I think these tools are perfect for collaborating with others in the development of learning and teaching.
Thanks again, Grainne, for openly sharing your and your teams ideas and resources.

My reflections of week 3
In this entry I look back at the learning process I went through in week three and the challenges I had. The week was very engaging with interesting tasks. I was able to try out different tools for my learning design.
What are the benefits of visual representations?
Representations are a window to the learning design. They allow the designer to analyse each aspect of the design process. I found that the visual representations helped me to decide on the content and a suitable pedagogical approach to deliver that content. I was also challenged to think about the resources that will not only enhance my design but provide useful learning pathway.
Did they help you think more creatively?
The representations were an excellent way of enhancing creativity. As I was moving cards around, producing the course maps and analyzing the activity profile, I debated a number of issues from pedagogy to implementation of the design.
What representation did you find most useful?
All the representations were useful each at different levels of planning. However, I was drawn more to the “course map at a glance” and the pedagogy profiler. The course map helped me think about what I was asking the students to do and how the environment provided needed support for students to carry out activities. With the pedagogy profile I could see the balance between activities and time allotted to the activities. By so doing I am able to balance the students’ workloads.
Students are the main stakeholders in teaching and learning. Sharing some of the views with them would help them understand why they are asked to do certain things.
My plan for week 4
In week 4 I intend to:
· Revise my design
· Learn more from the designs of colleagues
· Find out about pedagogy patterns.
