The International Journal of Designs for Learning is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed online journal dedicated to publishing descriptions of artifacts, environments and experiences created to promote and support learning in all contexts by designers in any field. The aim of the journal is to support the production of high quality precedent materials and to promote and demonstrate the value of doing so. Audiences for the journal include designers, teachers and students of design and scholars studying the practice of design.
Full length design cases should include a detailed description of the intervention as the central focus. In addition, the case should address:
the critical and/or interesting decisions made during the design process and their results in the intervention; key aspects of the design process as they are relevant to the form of the intervention; transparent discussion of problems and/or failure analysis relevant to the intervention and its design. Authors should make clear the relationship of the author to the project being described, context and conditions under which the project was carried out, and the features of the project that prompted the authors to make it the subject of a case. IJDL allows authors to present their cases using all the media capabilities the web affords - audio, video and even animated interactions.
IJDL is sponsored jointly by Indiana University and the Association for Educational Communications and Technology.
