This workshop aims to bring together different experiences of various design approaches for active and early scaling up of the appropriation of tools and practices. There exists, many Design Research approaches for developing TEL, but synthesising these approaches into a systematic framework is rare, even more so for scaling the use of TEL to support informal work-based learning. We briefly describe the work of four cases: Integrative Learning Design Framework (ILDF), the Design Process for scaling agility, Co-design approach, and Agile approach. In the workshop we drive for the framework that enables aggressive scaling. The design approaches are described with the goal to point the similarities and challenges for forming a synthesised framework.
