A Quick, No-Nonsense Guide to Basic Instructional Design Theory

A Quick, No-Nonsense Guide to Basic Instructional Design Theory | Tools for (e)Learning | Scoop.it

"Of the many eLearning theories that influence the practice, three of them are used by professionals on a daily basis...Practice and theory actually goes hand in hand. This is true not only in instructional design but in any other field or discipline. Theory, far from crippling your practice, will actually help you improve the quality of your eLearning material. While a learning theory won't answer all of your design problems, it offers clarity throughout your process and directs you toward finding solutions."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 4, 2014 10:02 AM

Learn more about three learning theories of instructional design in this post:

* Constructivism

* Cognitivism

* Behaviorism

Why? Each theory looks at "HOW" students learn. Understanding the theories helps you design activities that will help learners move forward in their learning process.

The infographic provides a definition for each of the theories and then provides ideas on what each theory helps the learner practice.

As with most infographics from SHIFT's eLearning Blog, this post also provides additional information on each of the three theories as well as links to additional resources.

Explore this post to better understand why these theories are important to all teachers, in online learning, blended learning and face2face situation.

Culturally Accessible E-Learning: An Overdue Global Business Imperative | Tools for (e)Learning | Scoop.it
Companies readily embrace e-learning to train globalized
workforces, but fail to recognize the impact of cultural

or failing to recognize cultural differences can endanger the
success of globalization efforts. Would you distribute the documentation for a new software p...
Lina Heaster-Ekholm's insight:

Excellent article highlighting cultural nuances inevitably embedded in learning objects. The author provides practical ideas for addressing “cultural accessibility” shortcomings through translation, localization, modularization (XCLOs), and origination.

“However, e-learning courses are cultural artifacts, embedded with the cultural values, preferences, characteristics, and nuances of the culture that designed them, and inherently creating challenges for learners from other cultures. These differences range from the obvious, such as language, to more hidden differences, such as learning styles, values, and religious influences.”
