This article, invited by the ALT Editor for the international ALT-N newsletter, reports on the work of the eLIDA CAMEL JISC-funded Design for Learning (D4L) competitively selected e-learning project. A Design for Learning project that grows an intentional e-learning community of practice (CoP) in Higher and Further Education (HE and FE) can stimulate challenging, illuminative processes to foster shared understandings about learning technology innovations, promoting authentic dialogue between practitioners. Technological and social insights gradually emerge in a designed CoP, symbolised by camels riding across the desert to meet together in the oases of partner hosts. Honest peer-group exchanges, facilitated by a critical friend, improve professional e-learning practice.
