This paper proposes a holistic approach to designing for the promotion of team and social competences in blended learning courses. Planning and modelling cooperative learning scenarios based on a domain specific modelling notation in the style of UML activity diagrams and comparing evaluation results with planned outcomes allows for iterative optimisation of a course's design. In a case study – a course on project management for computer science students – the instructional design including individual and cooperative learning situations was modelled. Specific emphasis was placed on visualising the hypothesised development of team competences in the course design models. These models were subsequently compared to evaluation results obtained during the course. The results show that visual modelling of planned competence promotion enables a more focused design, implementation and evaluation of collaborative learning scenarios.
