Learning Experience Design is NOT a new name for Instructional Design

Learning Experience Design is NOT a new name for Instructional Design | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Let’s start by defining the both fields:

“Instructional design is creating instructional experiences which make the acquisition of knowledge and skill more efficient, effective, and appealing.” (Wikipedia)

“Learning experience design is the process of creating learning experience that enable the learner to achieve the desired learning outcome in a human centered and goal-oriented way.” (learningexperiencedesign.com)

A clear difference is the use of instructional experience versus a learning experience. Putting the emphasis on the instruction and the instructor (or trainer, teacher, facilitator) is quite different from focussing on learning and the learner (student, trainee or participant). Putting the instructor in the center of the experience is still common in education. LX designers always put the learner in the center of the experience. This results in a different design where the needs and preferences of the learner are leading.

Obviously, they are both called design disciplines. However, instructional design is a very different type of design discipline than LX design. This has a lot to do with their origins.

Changing How Educators See Negative Experiences in the Classroom | MindShift | KQED News

Changing How Educators See Negative Experiences in the Classroom | MindShift | KQED News | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
An easy first step is to recognize and mindfully attend to positive emotional experiences in your classroom and at home. Evolution selected for a negative attribution bias that makes us tend to dwell on the negative and ignore the positive. During a typical day, 10 great things may have happened and one horrible thing. When we get home and our partner asks us how our day went, typically we focus on the one horrible thing, forgetting about the 10 great things.

From a Stone Age perspective the negativity bias was important for our survival: The ancient human walking down a path who saw something that looked like a snake would be more likely to survive if he jumped back quickly, assuming the worst. If another kept walking, curious as to whether or not it actually was a snake, he might get bitten and die, taking himself out of the gene pool. Because natural selection favored hypervigilance, we need to make a concerted effort to notice and focus on the positive—and even savor it.

Why EdTech Specialists should focus on transformation, not tools

Why EdTech Specialists should focus on transformation, not tools | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In the last decade, schools have dedicated tremendous resources to deploying technology into the classroom. As they invested in hardware and software, they began employing educational technology specialists to incorporate technology that improves pedagogy. Ideally, these specialists partner with teachers to design unique and creative experiences using new technology to boost engagement and risk-taking.

In practice, however, teachers tend to seek out specialists for a technological solution that makes an assignment or grading practice more efficient: A teacher takes a new tool or technique and applies it to previous content or assignments. These interactions are transactional rather than transformational; they enforce the status quo. And ultimately, they make it harder to transform learning in the long run.

Creativity as Classroom Culture

Creativity as Classroom Culture | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

CREATIVITY is CONTENT AGNOSTIC
This does not need to suck up a lot of time that could be spent learning things from the required curriculum – in fact, it DEPENDS on content. In Intention: Critical Creativity in the Classroom, my co-author Dan Ryder and I make the case that creativity is content agnostic. The 40+ “pathways” or ideas we offer truly can be used with any age group studying any discipline (even adults doing professional development in various areas!). They are content agnostic but at the same time, content dependent. Creativity is more about connecting disparate dots and remix than it is about generating brand-new ideas from the ether. And the “dots” we connect are metaphorical bits of knowledge students grow in their “dot forest” over time as they learn from observation, experience, and from us, their teachers.


The sweet spot then, is moving away from thinking of creativity as a separate skill, project, or time period – but rather,
juxtaposing CRITICAL THINKING, CREATIVE THINKING and CURRICULUM

Wonderful piece -- thoughtful, practical, and inspiring.

Long gone are the days when librarians were simply the “keeper of books,” and the administrators who have grown to realize this have found it much easier to accomplish their strategic vision by mobilizing this dedicated and knowledgeable part of their staff.

Survey of professors shows surprising lack of awareness of instructional designers | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
As online enrollments grow and many colleges ramp up their digital course and program offerings, the role of instructional designers -- staff members who work with instructors to adapt or build new digital courses -- is growing in importance.

But new data from Inside Higher Ed's just-released 2018 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology suggest that instructional designers -- and colleges and universities that want them to play a central role helping instructors create high-quality, well-built courses -- have a lot of work to do in building awareness of their role.

 Hey,  you guys up in the ivory tower, WAKE UP! It's the 21st Century and Instructional Design is essential!  

 

Late comers to online professional development might not recognized the supreme importance of highly skilled instructional design.  They find out the hard way (low enrollment, destruction of the brand) that weak design drives highly mobile online students away.  This realization is responsible, in part, for the boom in the ID job market.

Teacher education is ripe with ideas for improving teaching and learning. Unfortunately, when education leaders translate those ideas into school-based initiatives, many fall short of their aims. Even those with generous philanthropic backing, a solid research grounding, and careful planning and design all too often miss their intended marks.

A pesar de que hay muchos espacios que en esencia son muy parecidos unos de otros, no hay un enfoque único para planificar espacios de creación como los makerspaces. Estos espacios deben ser tan únicos y significativos como las comunidades a las que se destinan. Los enlaces y espacios que se describen en el presente artículo pretenden ofrecer una perspectiva nueva y única de lo que pueden ser los makerspaces. Cada espacio que se describe a continuación es único, enfatizando diferentes habilidades o temas. Aunque algunos de estos espacios no se encuentran en las escuelas (K-12), sin duda hay cosas que se pueden aplicar muy bien a la educación. (Laura Fleming, World of Learning, April 4, 2017).

The Future of Education: Trends we are sure to witness | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

We are living in an era when technology has evolved our lives beyond our imagination. So used to tech-enabled solutions, even the thought of living without them comes across as a nightmare to us. Following the herd for good, the education sector is also not spared from the shower of such tech advancements.

Today, students are happy learning lessons on their tablets and are enjoying the bliss of VR to go back in time and live in different eras—instead of merely reading their history notes. We are already witnessing the future of education now, and as it moves forward, it will indeed continue to be a treat.

Amidst all such advancements and cutting-edge tech inclusions, the education sector is destined to evolve.

To better understand where it’s headed, let’s have a look at some of the ways technology inclusions will be spelled out in the education sector in the years to come.
