An Overview of How to Design Instruction Using Critical Thinking Concepts The Logic of Instructional Design Instructional design involves two deeply interrelated parts: structures and tactics. In this article we focus on structures. Structures involve the "what" of the course: What am I going to teach? What content am I going to teach? What questions or problems will be central to the course? Online Learning Online learning is a general term used to refer to learning experiences that are delivered via a computer network to learners in different physical locations. Online learning is also known as e-Learning, although that is somewhat of an ambiguous term since just about all learning has some level of "e" in it. In addition, we use technology to enhance our work and we don't call it "e-work". We also don't label other types of learning (for example we don't call reading a book "b-learning"). Therefore while eLearning and online learning are essentially the same thing, the term Online Learning is the preferred term.

7 Key Characteristics Of Better Learning Feedback 7 Key Characteristics Of Better Learning Feedback by Grant Wiggins, Authentic Education On May 26, 2015, Grant Wiggins passed away.

Based on the learner’s responses, the mentor decides what question to ask next, what feedback to give, whether to delve deeper, or whether to proceed to something new.

“T-shaped” instructional design process « Spark Your Interest! (Not so) Recently I commented on Twitter about my approach to professional development this year and Steve Flowers (@xpconcept) commented that it made sense in a broader application to instructional design. Then, I saw a tweet from David Kelly (@LnDDave) who was at an #ASTD2012 conference session with Michael Allen. They were presenting their Successive Approximation Method (SAM) as a substitution for ADDIE (poor girl, everyone’s favorite whipping horse), which sounded a lot like a “T” in my mind. A short twitter exchange between Steve and myself led to this…a blog post idea. And now, hopefully a few weeks later a blog post!
