The Larnaca Declaration on Learning Design (Dalziel et al, 2013) provides a new synthesis of key concepts in the field of Learning Design, arising from a meeting of experts originally held in Larnaca, Cyprus in September 2012. This meeting grew out of several prior meetings supported by an Australian Learning and Teaching Council National Teaching Fellowship to the author (2011-2013), and “pedagogic planner” meetings in earlier years co-hosted by the author and Diana Laurillard.

These meetings had struggled to find a way to describe the conceptual foundations of Learning Design – in particular: the core concept of a “neutral” descriptive framework for many different kinds of teaching and learning activities; the wider context for teacher-led designing of activities in education; and the role of theory and practice in achieving effective learning outcomes for students.

This chapter provides an overview of the Larnaca Declaration, followed by reflections on the role of “art” and “science” in learning design processes, viewed through the lens of the Larnaca Declaration.
