Sharing learning designs that have been previously trialled and proven successful is a means of disseminating innovation and best teaching practice whilst at the same time conserving teacher time and effort. Generic learning designs provide a lesson scaffold that can introduce innovative teaching strategies to lecturers without requiring them to become experts in learning design or theory. The LAMS Activity Planner is a tool that uses generic learning designs to provide comprehensive guidance for academics that will assist them in the development of inspiring learning design examples and supportive activities. In this paper, two learning design examples, WebQuests and Web Dilemma, illustrate how generic learning designs can be used to share and reuse good teaching practice.
