Welcome to the Phoebe Project
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, the project team proposes to:
- Develop a prototype online planning tool that will offer users both flexible and guided paths through the planning process and enable them to access a wide range of models, research findings and examples of innovative learning designs, intended to encourage them to explore new approaches and tools in their pedagogy;
- User-test the planning tool for functionality and usability; and
- Investigate the feasibility of further development and the integration of the planning tool into pedagogic practice by embedding use of the planning tool into a specific context for piloting and evaluation: namely, initial practitioner training and/or continuing professional development.

Most recent news is first.
- 24/01/07: The project review meeting in Birmingham went well, so watch this space for news of phase 2 Phoebe
- 08/01/07: The new interface for Phoebe is being implemented and we are preparing for the Review meeting on the 23rd January in Birmingham
- 11/12/06: We had a lively and productive meeting with our sister project: a user-oriented planner for learning analysis and design being developed by the London Knowledge Lab. The two tools are approaching the task of designing for learning from complementary perspectives, and some exciting possibilities for synergy are emerging.
- 04/12/06: FINALLY! We have finished analysing the data from the Experts' Group meeting. You can read all about it in this report.
