This research addresses the need to make explicit the relation between pedagogy and the user interface, information architecture and content layout of e-learning courseware through design patterns. To do so, this research conceptualises a new type of design pattern called a ‘design for pedagogy pattern’, which explicitly shows the relationships between pedagogic strategies associated with the design elements featuring in e-learning courseware and those associated with the general and abstract ways of thinking about education including the social and the educational context of the learning, the preferred teaching practices of the instructors, and the tactics for engaging students. By creating representative design for pedagogy patterns for e-learning, the aim of the research is to understand how design for pedagogy patterns modify the design process for e-learning courseware.
