EDUC 891: Learning Design in Technology-Mediated Environments

Course Description

"This course explores a specific approach to learning design called instructional design (ID) that is a long-standing and established area of inquiry within the field of Educational Technology. You will explore the underlying assumptions ID holds about knowledge, learning, the learner, and the nature of instruction. You will examine, through case studies, the multitude of considerations that must be addressed in finding design solutions for learning and performance problems. Ultimately, you will be responsible to apply what you have learned in the creation of a learning/performance design using a design model relevant to the context of interest to you." ~Cheryl Amundsen
