If you are interested in the idea of teaching as a design science, and in particular the idea of using design patterns to develop educational experiences, all popularized by Diana Laurillard around ten years ago (ancient history in our discipline!) then you may be interested in this document (36 page PDF) from the last century. "This pattern language attempts to capture some of these 'best practices' of pattern writing, both by describing them in pattern form, and by demonstrating them in action." There has always been a lot of merit in the idea of design patterns - hey're widely used in software development - and I would consider pattern recognition and development to be a basic form of literacy. Via Raghav Agrawal. Plus: How to write a pattern? by Tim Wellhausen, Andreas Fießer, and Advanced Pattern Writing by Neil B. Harrison.
