The collected experience presented in this Wiki is structured in the form of Didactical Design Patterns to give systematic solutions to key problems connected to running VCL projects. In this way, we wish to share our experience with other institutions as a practical guide for transfarable best practices.
Didactical Design Patterns describe experiential knowledge about solution to problems/situations that may arise when designing a learning setting (in this case a virtual collaborative learning project). The solutions are described in general terms, but using practical examples. When using patterns, following points should be considered:
The structure of each pattern is as follows:
|Problem||Description of the problem|
|Framework||Description of the context|
|Solution||Description of the solution|
|Links||Links to other relevant patterns|
If you would like to use the patterns in the design of your learning setting, we suggest following procedure:
