Article - The Power of Scenario-Based Questions (Resources) | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
callooh's insight:

This is instructional design 101, but the only thing I'd emphacize/add is that questions that support "understanding" have to lead to more than a passive, abstract recognition of concepts and a problem space but also to a learner's own formulation of solutions in that problem space. We  also have to provide opportunities to test those solutions in a safe space (whether it's a face-to-face training space or online or in an informal learning sandbox).. Love the quoite about "retrieval practice paired with context alignment"--so important.

ghbrett's curator insight, October 23, 2013 12:29 PM

Scenarios present problems within a context. Context is often not well understood, but an important issue in dealing with real world problem solving. As the old saying sort of goes, "If you only have a hammer every problem is a nail."  Within the context of a scenario the student / learner needs to pick the correct set of "tools" to match the needs presented. This article also presents some ideas for instructional designers as well. A good Read.

Adaptive learning: The best approaches we've seen so far | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it

Focus on well understood subjects like math concepts.

Michael Patrick Dunn's curator insight, March 28, 3:27 PM

These adaptive programs are great for augmenting learning, closing the learning gaps, and/or being the intervention.  Core concepts still need to be taught thru best practice, which we know is direct, explicit instruction as shown by the research.

User Experience Debt — nForm

User Experience Debt — nForm | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
callooh's insight:

How much learner experience debt are you incurring when you develop a learning experience? Although describing the design of digital experiences more generally, it's very applicable to the ID world.

 

"UX debt is the quality gap between the experience your digital product delivers now and the improved experience it could offer given the necessary time and resources. Put another way, UX debt measures the number and magnitude of potential product enhancements that would improve the user experience."


Just substitute learner experience for UX...We all live in a world of constraints, however, unintentional ux/learner experience debt is something we can try to avoid.

Henry Lee's curator insight, March 16, 9:50 PM

Rescooped from Amos Cruz. This is a low-tech way to share a narrative. It really brings things back full circle since using toys is perhaps the first ways that we actually learn about the world....at least it was for me. For example, legos and building blocks taught me about basic physics and spatial relationships.

Robert Gagne’s Nine Steps of Instruction: Do’s and Don’ts in E-Learning | Origin Learning – A Learning Solutions Blog

Robert Gagne’s Nine Steps of Instruction: Do’s and Don’ts in E-Learning | Origin Learning – A Learning Solutions Blog | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
callooh's insight:

Gagne is a classic that still provides a good framework for instruciton. Would suggest not being too literal about providing a learning objective--rather consider a reminder to include some explicit reference to the WIIFM. Also think that step 4, 5,and 6 can sometimes be combined and/or flipped.  Depends on the content complexity and your learner (novice, intermediate, advanced). Often forgotten, yet very important--step 9, but think it should not just include a recap but an authentic way to take next steps in the workplace/org setting.

sarah kozlowski's curator insight, March 15, 9:21 PM

This article examines gagne's nine step process into an e-learning state of intruction. The one thing that jumped out at me that rings all too familiar is "Do not bombard learners with too much information or too many interactive elements on a single screen as it leads to cognitive overload. Keep the learning experience neat and controllable from the employees’ perspective." In today's e-learning world, people can sometimes become overstimulated with all of the resources available.
