iLED: interactive Learning Experience Design

Central Queensland University (CQU), Australia, faces declining student enrolment. An economic boom in Central Queensland region such as mining and building construction industries, and apprenticeship training programs within secondary schools and paid traineeships programs have driven secondary school graduates to ‘well-paid jobs' rather than ‘studies' at universities. In relation to this circumstance, the Dean of Faculty of Arts, Humanities & Education, CQU, raised a course delivery dilemma where the conventional academic teaching model, lectures, tutorials, workshops, student advice and support, is far from viable for student needs in the context that a significant proportion of CQU students are mature aged and study by distance education. The faculty dean proposed the challenge of designing a new delivery model to fit into this context. As a possible solution, this paper suggests a pedagogical framework called iLED: interactive Learning Experience Design based on defining an interactive learning experience through exploring the online learning experience and context in order to enhance the current CQU online learning system. This paper also discusses the relevant issues in relation to delivery formats, assessments methods, and the required skills for carrying out the online-based learning. At the end, it suggests the five domain prototypes of iLED, categorising the courses and programs being offered by CQU.
