Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, August 20, 8:04 AM

Assumption #1 (Self-Concept)
Create learning experiences that offer minimum instruction and maximum autonomy.

Assumption #2 (Adult Learner Experience)
Include a wide range of instructional design models and theories to appeal to varied experience levels and backgrounds.
Assumption #3 (Readiness to Learn)
Utilize social media and online collaboration tools to tie learning to social development.

Assumption #4 (Orientation to Learning)
Emphasize how the subject matter is going to solve problems that an adult learner regularly encounters.
Assumption #5 (Motivation to Learn)
There must be a valid reason behind every eLearning course, module or educational activity.


Principle of Andragogy#1
Adults must have a hand in the design and development of their learning experience.

Principle of Andragogy#2
Experience should be at the root of all eLearning tasks and activities.

Principle of Andragogy #3
Real life applications and benefits must be tied to the eLearning course.

Principle of Andragogy #4
Give adult learners the opportunity to absorb information, rather than memorizing it.

Understanding Invisible Disabilities & Online Education Accessibility

Understanding Invisible Disabilities & Online Education Accessibility | Instruction Design Issues | Scoop.it
Accommodations are needed for "invisible" disabilities. Read takeaways from the SloanC webinar and tips for online education accessibility.
Gayla Keesee's insight:

On Tuesday, the Sloan Consortium concluded its accessibility series with the fourth and final webinar, Accessibility Specialists: Understanding “Invisible” Disabilities & What this Means for Online Education. This webinar was dedicated to facilitating learning for those students who may otherwise appear “normal,” but who have a disability that inhibits the learning process. These disabilities can be physiological, cognitive, or behavioral.

Providing an equal learning environment for those with hearing or visual disabilities is already difficult in online classrooms where students are somewhat anonymous. They must self-identify as a disabled person. The same is true for invisible disabilities, but unlike physical impairments, where teachers can reasonably infer limitations, faculty are not familiar with accommodations required for these conditions. This post contains some key takeaways from the webinar and more about how institutions of higher education can meet the challenges of online students with invisible disabilities.
