Collections of Pedagogical Design Patterns

Design Pattern Collection

The original Pedagogical Patterns project

The project started in 1996 with the aim of collecting and disseminating experiences of teaching and learning about object technology. We adopted a pattern format early on, although the specific format has evolved over time. In this paper we give an overall view of the project: where it started, how the material we have collected has evolved and matured, and where we need to go from here.

The e-LEN pattern repository
In the E-learning Design Patterns Repository you will find a collection of design pattern for e-learning. These patterns have been jointly developed within the E-LEN projects.

The Person-Centered e-Learning Pattern Repository

The Kaleidoscope Learning Patterns project

The project Learning patterns for the design and deployment of mathematical games was a a Jointly Executed Integrating Research Project of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence. It collected design narratives and used them to elicit design patterns in the domain of games for learning mathematics.

The Pattern Language Network
The patternlanguagenetwork site has been decommissioned. A static copy is available at:
Planet (Pattern Language Network) was a multi-institutional project funded under the JISC Users and Innovation Programme, which supported a community of HE practitioners, who are using Web 2.0 in assessment, learning and teaching, to capture and share their examples of good practice as patterns. 

The Pedagogical Patterns Collector
An online tool that has been developed as part of the LDSE project. It provides (1) a 'Browser', for exploring a set of pedagogical patterns (lesson designs/learning designs) in their generic form, and also interpreted for 3 different discipline topics; (2) a 'Designer', for either creating or adapting a pedagogical pattern, which then analyses the overall nature of the learning experience you have created.
