Philosophy of Learning
I believe that learning should be participatory and that it should be fun. When I design learning, I begin with the client's goal, asking, "At the end, what should the learner be able to know and do?" and by looking for a one sentence answer from my client. If the client cannot answer in a sentence, the goal needs to be clarified.
“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”
As an instructional designer, I build outcomes from that know & do goal, and ensure every outcome supports it. Next, I determine how to assess those outcomes and the final learning goal. How will we know that the learners have met the goal? Can they do what we set out to accomplish?
Finally, I add content , which is chunked out into manageable pieces. The material is reviewed by the client, then piloted with the learners. Together, we review strengths and weaknesses and revise accordingly.
