Open design questions

  • “What would a vision of a truly open approach to design mean; beyond open educational resources towards a more explicit representation and sharing of the whole design process?” (Conole, 2010)
  • What is the relationship between open design and other forms like Design Based Research (DBR)? Just make DBR transparent?
  • How do we factor in institutional & organisational issues into open design?
  • Design for who and by who? Is it just about teachers? Where is the locus of control? Who decides what learning is?
  • Do we include participatory design? If so, is there  scope  in  an intervention  for  users  to  adapt  the content elements of a Mobile Augmented Reality system?
  • Inclusive research with people with learning disabilities. What do we mean by individualized risk?  Risk to who?
  • RE  MATURE’s work-based learning (WBL) DBR model
    • ‘Learn and problematize about experience and constraints in context’.
    • Is there is a tension between scientific innovation and user needs?
    • Sharing theory with all stakeholder is complex?
  • What about open design for WBL contexts?
    • How do we support transition between contexts as work-based, informal and formal  learning contexts merge?
  • During their continuing learning activities, what will the learning trail left behind by learners tell us as they move from one learning context to the next?
  • How can we improve our understanding of how elements of context can be maintained over time, so as to scaffold a perceived continuity of learning?
  • How do we to make explicit to society at large what new abilities are needed to design for the world we live in?
    • How do we place the means for learning these skills at the heart of society?
    • Is the alternative the gradual curtailment of democratic processes as people lose their power to contribute to debates about their future?
