An introduction with examples of the 'stimulus' and 'narrative' learning designs, or pedagogical patterns, as part of the DiAL-e framework. The emphasis of the 'stimulus' learning design is to stimulate interest and student engagement. It is anticipated that the introduction of any teaching interaction with media in this way will reinforce or disrupt the expectations of learners in a deliberate fashion. The 'narrative' learning design encompasses activities which enable learners to develop a story or narrative using video clips in different ways, including sequences. Narratives provide an overarching structure with signposts providing direction. Learners might be producing a narrative with the clips or learning to understand how a narrative is constructed using the clips as examples.
