Addressing the need to investigate how to embed learning theories into the interface, information architecture and content design of e-learning courseware, this research creates a method to develop 'design for pedagogy patterns', a language of design which helps designers place teaching and learning theories at the heart of e-learning design. It does this by developing a pattern-making tool - the 'pattern pack' - which aids writers in the task of creating a design for a pedagogy pattern. This paper presents a design narrative about the application of the pattern pack to develop a 'design for a pedagogy pattern' for an e-learning online forum. An evaluation of the patterns by an expert is included to discuss the quality of the patterns that can be created using this methodology. This work formed part of the work of the 'Design for Pedagogy Patterns for E-Learning' project.
