The International Journal of Designs for Learning has just come out with a really interesting collection of historic design cases. The nine cases span from 1959 to 2003 and examine such initiatives as the Midwest Program on Airborne Television Instruction, Minimalist Instruction, and the Alcatraz Cellhouse Tour. "Without the documentation of these designed artifacts including the narratives of their creations, we take avoidable risks—a misconception that each new breakthrough is itself entirely new, repeating failures we as a field have already grappled with and sometimes overcome, and overlooking the insights built into designs we use every day."
