Designing creative, connected learning experiences often requires more preparation than traditional approaches to teaching and learning. While some resources exist to support designers and educators, it remains difficult to adapt and remix existing resources. In particular, it can be challenging to understand the context in which a resource or activity might have been used or the rationale behind design decisions, raising challenges to adaptation to other contexts.

In this workshop, participants will explore ways to design for remixability i.e. to approach learning design in ways that encourage and facilitate sharing and adaptation of resources. In particular, participants will prototype design approaches that might lower the floors for sharing, remixing, and opening up the thinking behind learning designs. They’ll have the chance to workshop their prototypes and to reflect on tradeoffs, tensions, and principles that might guide future efforts to design for remixability.
