The Trouble With Measuring Understanding

The Trouble With Measuring Understanding | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

...But to pull back and look at the big picture is a bit troubling. There are so many moving parts in learning: assessment design, academic standards, underpinning learning targets for each standard, big ideas, essential questions, instructional strategies — and on and on and on in an endless, dizzying dance.

Why so much “stuff” for what should be a relatively simple relationship between learner and content?

The One Skill You Need to Excel in Instructional Design

The One Skill You Need to Excel in Instructional Design | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Instructional design is a multi-faceted discipline, and – let’s face it – a lot is asked of instructional designers (IDs). We need to have adult learning theory and learning models at our fingertips, be data detectives, sharp interviewers, and writers who can weave a story, not to mention detail-oriented, process-oriented, organized pros. Yet the one essential skill for IDs in corporate training and Learning and Development (L&D) is rarely taught in schools.
