In the last years the scope of pattern languages has expanded to include domains as diverse as group work, software design, human computer interaction, education, etc. Pedagogical Patterns have education as the field of interest. They seek to find best practices of teaching.

According to Joseph Bergin:

“The intent [of pedagogical patterns] is to capture the essence of the practice in a compact form that can be easily communicated to those who need the knowledge. Presenting this information in a coherent and accessible form can mean the difference between every new instructor needing to relearn what is known by senior faculty and easy transference of knowledge of teaching within the community“.

Although widespread in the software industry, patterns are still crawling along in the educational field. Whereas software developers make regular use of mature patterns, the educational community as a whole is still far from including patterns in their everyday tool-box.
