Action Learning Pathway – Full

Read the Design Summary first


When I asked Looby Macnamara to be my tutor one of her requirements was that the first design I did was to design my ‘Action Learning Pathway’ through my diploma using the design web. Thankfully she gave me a list of questions for each anchor point to answer before our first tutorial. I can’t say I found this a very easy design to get started with, but I have definitely reaped many yields from it over the last two and a half years and I am very grateful for Looby initiating it.

Design Diversity Evaluation

As part of my first version of my learning pathway I created the ‘Design Diversity Analyser’ to allow me to check out as I went how diverse my portfolio was. There were a range of criteria, such as design framework (with symbols) that went in the central window and then there was a card for each design with all of the applicable symbols on it, such as a web for the design web.
