Running a 7Cs of Learning Design workshop


Someone asked me today about how to run a 7Cs Learning Design workshop. Here are my suggestions.

  1. An ideal number for the workshop is 25 – 30, with participants working in teams of five. At the beginning of the workshop, they need to agree a course or module to work on.
  2. Give each participant a handout with the outline of the workshop and associated resources.
  3. Give an overview of the 7Cs of Learning Design framework.
  4. Get the groups to work through the activities, get feedback from each group after each activity.
  5. Carry out an evaluation at the end: what did they like about the workshop? Room for improvement?  Three words to describe the workshop. Action plan as a result of attending the workshop.
