Learning Design Visual Sequence

The Learning Design Visual Sequence (Agostinho, Harper, Oliver, Hedberg, & Wills, 2008) documents a learning design in a visual way by illustrating the chronology of tasks, resources and supports using symbols for each of the three learning design elements (squares/rectangles for tasks, triangles for resources and circles for supports). A time period for the learning design and intended learning outcomes are also included.
