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.

- 15/02/07: We have just heard that we have funding for Phase 2 of Phoebe, so there will be lots of opportunity to get involved in our evalution and continuation activities.
- 12/02/07: We are now releasing "guest" accounts for Phoebe, and have provided a Getting Started guide for people who would like to try out the tool. We'll be conducting an online evaluation in April, so please contact us if you're interested in taking part.
- 12/02/07: We have submitted our plans for Phase 2 to JISC, so we're now keeping our fingers crossed...
- 12/02/07: Liz will be giving a presentation, Disrupt or co-opt? The role of a pedagogic planning tool in promoting effective design for learning, as part of a symposium on design for learning at CAL '07 on Tuesday 27th March. Come along and join the discussion with three other projects: our sister project at the London Knowledge Lab, the Models of Practice project (both part of the D4L programme) and the "Designs for Learning in Virtual Learning Environments: Insider perspectives" project.
- 12/02/07: Phoebe will be one of the tools on display at an internal 'Tools for Teaching' event to be held by OUCS on 23rd April and aimed at Oxford teaching staff interested in using technology with their students.
