This paper describes work-in-progress in the area of educational design patterns. More specifically, the paper highlights a relatively neglected area in educational design for technology-supported learning – the various ways in which students can be grouped together to work collaboratively on study activities. Thus, it looks at the ‘people’ component of the ‘task, tools and people’ design model. The paper outlines this design model, sketches the ‘people’ component and offers an example design pattern to illustrate how design knowledge can be shared through design patterns and pattern languages. The research has implications for anyone who is concerned about sharing good ideas for technology-supported collaborative learning, whether in small, medium-sized or large groups (from dyads to learning communities).
