This deliverable is the first of three deliverables in WP3: Persuasive Learning Design Framework, and will serve as the basis for the future work of mapping persuasive principles to learning activities, to be reported in D.3.2 and for the development of Persuasive Learning Designs, to be reported in deliverable D.3.3.
This document is structured as follows: in section 1, we present the basics of Persuasive Design. This section is to be understood in connection with presentations given at the consortium meetings in Leeds and Aalborg, and in connection with the subsequent discussions. In section 2, we offer examples of central issues in learning theories can be aligned with persuasive efforts as seen from a rhetorical point of view. In section 3, we continue the work of defining intersections between persuasion and didactics, where more specifically oriented towards the notions of kairos, constructive alignment, and towards a common understanding of the ethical stances we believe should underpin persuasive efforts. In section 4, we present viewpoints on the four cases, central to the PLOT project. This section is the result of a workshop held at the consortium meeting in Aalborg. Finally, in section 5, we make some remarks on the path towards the next deliverable.
