Welcome to the Phoebe Project Wiki
A practitioner-focused environment to support design for learning
The Phoebe project aims to guide practitioners working in post-compulsory learning (FE, HE and ACL) in designing effective and pedagogically sound learning activities. To realise this aim, we are:
- Developing a prototype online planning tool that will offer users both flexible and guided paths through the planning process and encourage them to explore new approaches and tools in their pedagogy;
- User-testing the planning tool for functionality and usability; and
- Investigating the feasibility of further development and the integration of the planning tool into pedagogic practice by embedding it in teacher-training and staff-development contexts.
The project is being carried out by Oxford University Department for Continuing Education and Oxford University Computing Services, and is funded under the JISC Design for Learning programme. Phase 1 (01/05/06 to 28/02/07) focused on developing a proof-of-concept prototype. In phase 2 (01/03/07 to 06/05/08) we worked on a more full-featured tool for evaluation with practitioners.
