LEARN: A New Model for Instructional Design
Concurrent Session 3
Current models for instructional design cannot keep up with today's demands. Time to embrace a new model focusing on satisfaction and the joy of discovery.
The models and standards for quality available to today's instructional designers simply are not enough. There is too much emphasis on a kind of "quality" that is easily measured and a kind of design and development process that privileges the "measurable outcome/objective" over the process of education. It's time for a new design ethos and model. This education session will discuss Green Light Design and its LEARN model: new ways to think about how to get quality, accessible, and scalable course online in a timely fashion. The LEARN model is based on the critical five steps of good instructional design: Listen, Envision, Adapt, Revise, Negotiate. Participants will be introduced to this model and have the opportunity to participate in the development of ideas consistent with our Green Light Design philosophy.
Participants in this session will leave being able to:
1) Explain the idea driving Green Light Design.
2) Explain and reflect upon the LEARN model.
3) Connect with other like-minded designers and others eager to refocus educational outcomes to include qualitative and difficult to measure concepts such as "learn" and "understand."
The presenters will provide handouts and contact information.
