This course will introduce a methodology for designing performance-based learning solutions that are relevant, efficient, and grounded in adult learning principles. You will practice writing learning objectives based on a task or competency analysis. You will learn how to select assessments that properly measure a learner’s achievement of course objectives. You will outline a learning design strategy by identifying the right methods and modalities that will achieve the performance outcomes and engage the learner in a meaningful way. You will explore practices and techniques for structuring and sequencing teaching and learning materials when creating lessons. Finally, you will identify considerations for the implementation of learning solutions in a variety of learning channels.
Online Course: 3-5 hours of work per week (including discussion, assignments, readings, research)
In Class: 2 days in class (9am-5pm), with 3-5 hours of work outside of classroom time.
Critical Performance Statement:
