What are teaching & learning design principles?
As we design increasingly sophisticated digital learning environments, it’s important to incorporate what we know from decades of education, cognitive, and learning science research. To help us do so, we’ve synthesized this work into an accessible, usable set of teaching and learning design principles.
These principles offer solid reference points for targeted aspects of how people learn. Each has been vetted by stakeholders across Pearson and, in some cases, outside experts.
We’ve published a subset of this work under a Creative Commons license to share what we know about learning and how it can be applied. We hope the entire education community — especially those designing educational experiences — will take a look, find them useful and adopt some of the insights we’ve gathered.
