10 Jul The INOS Learning Design Framework is now available
Are participants learning from Open Science, Citizen Science or Open Innovation activities?
How can we boost the educational value of these events?
The INOS Learning Design Framework is a useful planning resource for those organising Open Science, Citizen Science and Open Innovation activities.
What does the Learning Design Framework offer?
- A framework that focuses on enhancing the educational value of Open Science, Citizen Science or Open Innovation Activities
- A framework developed from comprehensive pedagogical research of past Open Science, Citizen Science and Open Innovation Activities.
- Specific recommendations that address common pedagogical challenges faced by open activities.
- A reiterative framework that guides organisers through the process of learning design that extends from before, during and after the activity takes place.
- A flexible framework that suits the needs of various individual activities.
- A systematic framework developed with usability in mind.
The Learning Design Framework includes 4 Steps:
- Goal Setting – Establishing key background information and the overarching activity goals
- Activity Development – Designing activity tasks, establishing tools and resources, and designing the learning evaluation method.
- Run Activity – Tasks for organisers when running the activity and engaging with participants, including recording modifications and observing participant responses.
- Reflection and Future Planning – Tasks for organisers after the activity, including learning evaluation to improve future iterations of the activity, as well as dissemination of pedagogical findings to develop the overall field.

As a living document, the framework will be continually developed as feedback is gathered from pilot events in 2020 and 2021.
