About US

We are design scientists!

Teaching is about the design of productive learning experiences. It is about placing students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions. And learning is a formative shift in learners’ cognitive schema. It is about moving minds and mindsets. If learners have not learned anything, then all a teacher may have done is ‘talked’ at them. Seen in this manner, teaching is design science, and teachers are designers of this learning experience, like directors of ensembles, or architects and engineers of roads, bridges and buildings.



Purposeful application of information and communications technology in the design, production, and utilization of goods and services, and in the organization of human activities


Communication of knowledge and skills of a group of people from one generation to the next through teaching, training, and research.


Applying knowledge, intuition and creativity to come up with artefacts that have not been invented or applied yet.

Distance Education

A mode of education in which learners are separated in time/space/pace from their educational provider

Open Education

The idea of open education comprises access to educational opportunities; the ability to learn at any time, anywhere and at any pace; and the practice of open scholarship.

Flexible Learning

Flexibility is a value principle that provides opportunities for equitable access to learning.

The act of designing begins with an in-depth knowledge of core principles as well as a very thorough understanding of the context. Quite often a particular design is the outcome of the interactions between the design act and the issues and requirements of the context.

Great teaching is about grand designs!
