    1. 1. Designing InstructionBased on Student Needs Karen Vignare Michigan State University
    2. 2. Agenda• Objectives• Introduction• Definitions• Discussion• Summary• References
    3. 3. Objectives• Understand the purpose of Instructional Design• Recognize different design processes• Apply Instructional Design to your Learners• Use technology or templates to help with Instructional Design
    4. 4. Instructional Design• Instructional design is defined as the systematic process of trying to make instruction more effective, efficient and appealing• Any instructor can practice it but there are experts and it is a growing field of employment• It requires focusing more on the learner’s needs to determine how to effectively instruct
    5. 5. Instructional Design Methods• ADDIE • Analysis • Design • Development • Implement • Evaluate
    6. 6. Instructional Design Process
    7. 7. Modified Needs Analysis The Secret of Instructional Design is …(Adapted from Powerful Principles of Instructions, … Consistency among all parts of the instruction. Yelon, Stephen S. Longman Publishers, 1996.)
    8. 8. Modified Needs Analysis• Identify problem • What do we know about the community • Where are the gaps• Discussion of content • SMEs • Feedback from targeted audience • What content currently exists• Peer review/beta testing • Technical feedback • Subject area feedback • Standards checklist
    9. 9. Instructional Design and Learning Theories• Learning theories study how people learn • Behaviorism—structured behavior resembles linear learning • Constructivism –learning is created from previous knowledge and new instructional processes • Cognitive Science provides more information about appropriate scaffolding for learners • Social Learning (Constructivism)—Learning is social activity and team based approaches are best
    10. 10. Tying Learning and Design Together• Most instructional design is based on a learning theory• Online design is often driven by technology but often by pedagogy• Recognizing the learning environment is complex and interrelated is often difficult• Theories like Community of Inquiry try to pull these elements together
    11. 11. Client Designs • FCIB International Credit & Risk Management • Instructor-led online courses • Peer-to-peer interaction • Cohort based
    12. 12. Client Designs• Citizen Planner • Online self-paced courses • Master Citizen Planner Credentialing Exam
    13. 13. MHU IntroductionClient Designs• My Horse University • Self-paced courses • DVDs • Webcasts • Monthly newsletter • Sponsorships/ Partnerships
    14. 14. Customizations• The RIGHT Experience • Technology • Interactivity • Learning strategy/process/consistency • Organizing around a need • Making content reusable
    15. 15. Technology and Templates•
    16. 16. YOUR Turn• Design a lesson/module/week of instruction• Define your students—examples, include full-time, live on or near campus, have no previous knowledge• What are the objectives of the instruction?• What resources will you have?• What will you need to assess?• What should students be able to do as a result of the instruction
    17. 17. Discussion• How is using instructional design different than normal preparation for courses?
    18. 18. Summary• Introduced Instructional Design• Shared several types of Design methods• Applied instructional design to a course• Used technology or templates to help with Instructional Design
    19. 19. References• Bransford, John. How People Learn: Bridging Research and Practice• Gagné, Robert, Nine Events of Instruction• Vygotsky, Lev, Social constructivism•
