Writers’ Workshop
The first half of the workshop will be structured as an agile writers’ workshop. Participants will break into three workshop groups (see this page for paper and participant groupings:, and discuss each others’ contributions. These discussions will not include presentations of the papers themselves! Instead, participants are expected to read those beforehand and prepare comments and suggestions for improvement (3-4 papers in each workshop).
A more detailed description of the process can be found here: writers-workshop-cheatsheet.pdf

Pattern Storming
In the second half of the day we will build on the insights from the morning to sketch a Signature Pedagogy (Shulman, 2005) for Hybrid learning spaces. Shulman notes that a signature pedagogy has three layers:

  • The Surface structure – “concrete, operational acts of teaching and learning, of showing and demonstrating, of questioning and answering, of interacting and withholding, of approaching and withdrawing”
  • The Deep structure – “a set of assumptions about how best to impart a certain body of knowledge and know-how”, and –
  • The Implicit structure – “a moral dimension that comprises a set of beliefs about the professional attitudes, values, and dispositions”

We will consider these three layers, and use the following constructs to describe them:

  • Value and Vision statements – to describe the implicit structure
  • Design Principles and Epistemic Principles – to describe the deep structure
  • Design Patterns – to describe the surface structure
