Part 1: About Carpe Diem

One very good way of getting e-tivities designed and deployed for learning and teaching in your organization is to use a team-based learning design process called Carpe Diem, which includes a two-day workshop. The idea behind Carpe Diem was that every moment of the time during the workshop would be spent on designing something that could be put into immediate use with participants—so I used the term ‘carpe diem’, the Latin for ‘seize the day’. It’s a practical response to the essential truth that developing learning with technology cannot be a ‘solo’ activity but instead a design and ‘ecological’ experience (Ellis and Goodyear, 2010; Laurillard, 2012).
