Designing learning Designing learning Presentation Transcript

  • Interactive Safety Training Lessons Learned From a Designing Learning CourseShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego 1
  • Overview• How people learn• Methods and media• Creating valid tests• ActivitiesShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 2 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Human Memory and Learning• Working memory – Conscious center; processes data – Limited capacity & duration – Separate visual and auditory• Long-term memory – Stored knowledge and experience – Can’t process data – Large capacity & durationShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 3 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Challenge• How to get information from the Working Memory into the Long- Term Memory – Psychological processes of learning – ROPES modelShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 4 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Psychological Processes of Learning Clear objectivesSupport attention Avoid distractionsActivate prior Introduction & reviewknowledge Analogies BTW old & new Segmented lessonsManage cognitive load Avoid extraneous material VisualsPromote rehearsal and Questionsencoding Practice exercises Workplace scenariosPractice RetrievalShelly Bradley - Hendrix Case studiesCollege 5 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • *Sequencing and structuring*• Task-centered• Topic-centered Food Beef Furniture• Problem-centered Orange Animals Cabbage Pea Grapefruit Lemon Apple Bed Fish Cow Chicken Apple Cookie Cat Chair LettuceDog Bean Pear Desk Elephant Sugar Sofa HorseShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 6 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • ROPES Model of Design• Review – pre-quiz, participant’s experiences• Overview – goals, objectives, intro exercises• Presentation – segmented content, visuals, examples, assignments, guided discussion• Exercise – projects, case studies, games• Summary – lessons learned, apply knowledge to tasks, visual aids, tests & quizzesShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 7 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Bob Pike’s 90/20/8 Rule• Take a break every 90 minutes• Change pace every 20 minutes• Interact every 8 minutesShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 8 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Learning Methods and Media• Instructional methods vs instructional media• Matching learning methods to learning objectives• Matching learning methods to learnersShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 9 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Methods vs Media• Method – the manner in which material is presented – Lectures, discussions, activities, etc• Media – the platform used to present material – Computer, classrooms, workbooks, etcShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 10 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Learning Objectives• Three types of learning o Knowledge: ex. – hazards of sulfuric acid o Skill: ex. – safely handle sulfuric acid o Attitude: ex. – response to authorityShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 11 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • *Matching Methods to Objectives*Lecture or Knowledgevideo_______________________________Independent Knowledgestudy_____________________________Group Knowledge, skill, attitudediscussion______________________________Case- Knowledge, skill, attitudestudy____________________________________Simulation________________________________ Skill, attitude____Shelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 12 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Matching Methods to Learners• Group size – small group activities• Education level – case studies, discussions• Language – visual aids, simulations• Learning styles – handouts, visual aids, lectures• Disabilities – hands-on activities, visual aids, demonstration with practice Shelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 13 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Practice exercises, tests, and measures• Practice exercises for knowledge or tasks/competencies – Jigsaw – Incident feedback (Hill, R., Finster, C. Laboratory Safety for Chemistry Students, 1st ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New Jersey, 2010.)Shelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 14 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Practice exercises, tests, and measures• What is a valid test? – Matches objectives – Matches knowledge and skill requirements – Example: hazard, safe manner of use, and disposal• Test guidelines – Clear instructions – Brief questions with only essential information – Group questions by topic areasShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 15 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Implementation1. General Chemistry a. Brief intro; Spot the Hazard; develop safety rules; MSDS exercise #1; visual aid; safety quiz b. Brief intro; safety test; safety quiz2. Organic Chemistry a. Brief intro; Safety Jeopardy; MSDS exercise #2; safety quiz b. Brief intro; safety test; safety quizShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 16 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Implementation3. a. Biological Chemistry: Brief intro; MSDS exercise #3; visual aid b. Environmental Analysis: Brief intro; MSDS exercise #4; Risk assessmentShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 17 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Implementation4. Physical Chemistry/Advanced Inorganic/ Advanced Analytical a. Regulatory Background, MSDS exercise # 5 b. Brief intro, Risk Assessment Exercise, IRI complete hazard and disposal determinationShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 18 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Implementation• Bloodborne Pathogen Training – Brief intro – Jigsaw activity – Practice exercise – Group discussion – Job Aid • PANICShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 19 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
  • Acknowledgements• American Society for Training and Development (ASTD)• Faculty, staff, and students at Hendrix CollegeShelly Bradley - HendrixCollege 20 Spring 2012 ACS, San Diego
