The Architecture of Productive Learning Networks free pdf

The Architecture of Productive Learning Networks explores what characterises productive networked learning and how one can create an innovative design that is, at the same time, suited to a particular context and builds on tested experiences of supporting effective learning. Inspired by the work of Christopher Alexander with Design Patterns and Pattern Languages, and capitalising on more recent developments in design research, the book argues for, and presents, a coherent framework that can capture the essentials of productive learning networks.

With a focus on the architecture of networked learning, this book brings together a series of case studies to illustrate how the analytical framework can be applied to unveil key structural relations between the entities involved in productive learning networks. The case studies include networks from a variety of disciplinary and professional fields, including graphic design, chemistry, medicine and teacher education. These learning networks were implemented in a variety of settings: undergraduate courses in higher education, continuing professional development, and informal networks for creating and sharing knowledge on a particular topic.
