How can Instructional Design be visual as well as engaging?

How can Instructional Design be visual as well as engaging? | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
 e-Learning has been using this ‘show, don’t tell’ approach for a long time. However, although scenarios and interactions go a long way to involving the learner in the course, I think we need to pay greater attention to the different styles of learning. You’re probably familiar with Fleming’s VAK/VARK model of three ‘types’ of learners: visual, auditory and kinaesthetic. He makes the argument that some learn best through visual aids such as diagrams, others through discussion, and other by physically carrying out tasks. Although I think this is too ‘neat’ a categorisation of learners, as a mixture of learning types is more stimulating than a single format, I find this model useful for considering all the different elements that make up a good course.

saellner's comment, April 3, 2012 10:48 AM
I agree that we need to weave all three VAK types of learning activities into e-learning as well as face-to-face learning. While students are stronger in one modality, they benefit by strengthening the others. Also, by weaving all three, each students is learning through their favorite modality at least part of the time. Ideally, instructional designers could give more student choice in which modality they choose for a specific learning task or concept.
