LEARNING DESIGN SERIES

IE126   Introduction and Basics of Learning Design

Description:

Designing an instruction or a learning experience is an important aspect of contemporary learning, especially online learning or learning in a MOOC where the learner is expected to self-direct and navigate his or her own learning.  What differentiate such learning from a traditional, didactic classroom based course are the diverse learners, the technology that support the learning goals of the learners, the provision of time, the learning environment that include global environment and social learning. The lecturer/ instructor plays multiple role from disseminating content to facilitating. As learners learn from each other and from the vast resources available online, designing significant learning may differ from the traditional norm of directing and instructing the learners based on a specified text and finishing off with a test or quiz.

Rather than positioning oneself as the instructor designing the instruction, one should think of designing the learning experience of the learners.  Taking all these aspects into consideration, this session provides a discussion on two perspectives of design: (1) instructional design principles and (2) learning design that may be employed to guide the process of designing a more meaningful learning experience.

Objective:

  • To enhance the ability of the participant to design learning for his or her course/topic.
  • To assist lectures in planning out the delivery of a course by focusing on the learning outcomes and strategizing for learning motivation and engagement.
  • To identify relevant technologies and learning assessments

Approach
(i) Lectures
(ii) Group discussion
