Addressing the need to investigate how to embed learning theories into the interface, information architecture and content design of e-learning courseware, this research creates a method to develop “design for pedagogy patterns”, a language of design which helps designers place teaching and learning theories at the heart of e-learning design. It does this by developing a pattern-making tool – the “pattern pack” – which aids writers in the task of creating a design for pedagogy pattern. This paper illustrates a case study on the application of the pattern pack to develop a design for pedagogy pattern for an e-learning online forum. An evaluation of the patterns by an expert is included to discuss the quality of the patterns that can be created using this methodology.
