Many teaching resources provide definitions and examples of learning activities, such as online discussions, web searches, blog posts and wiki activities. This resource, however, has been designed as an extensive bank of activities (learning designs, if you will) providing instructions that you can adapt to your own discipline and context.

This resource has been designed to be searchable by field category, as well as tags. Activities are assigned fields according to the type of interaction in the activity, structure, discipline, learning taxonomy, activity type and creative commons license.  Each comes with a brief description, as well as the full text of the activity.

You are invited to search the resource and use whatever you find most useful. I also encourage you to contribute your own successful learning activities and comment on those you reuse, adapt or explore. If you use adapt a resource, please reshare your version. I hope you will find this a useful resource for your teaching and/or design practice.
