  1. 1. Instructional Methodology Amanda McMaster, Larry Muffet, Dagan Rainey & Kim Young HRD 860 Project A Dr. Bronack Clemson University
  2. 2. Self-Directed Learning (SDL) <ul><li>SDL is becoming an increasingly popular topic. </li></ul><ul><li>According to Cheryl Meredith Lowry, 90% of adults engage in some type of self-directed learning each year spending an average of 100 hours on each project. </li></ul><ul><li>Self-directed learning in adults usually occur as an attempt to improve work performance but may also be used for family life, health, hobbies or simply increasing intellect. </li></ul><ul><li>Learners are responsible owners and managers of their own learning process. </li></ul><ul><li>Learners exercise a great deal of independence in a setting. </li></ul><ul><li>Settings can vary from web-based to traditional classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Information provided by Cheryl Meredith Lowry at http://www.ntlf.com/html/lib/bib/89dig.htm </li></ul>
  3. 3. Three (3) Types of Self-Directed Learning (SDL) <ul><li>Independent Learning- This concept is defined as a learner being in an isolated setting. The learner makes decisions about goals, content, effort, time and evaluation. Acceptance from others is determined by the learner. </li></ul><ul><li>Distance Learning- This concept is defined as a physical distance between the learner and the teacher. The learner is constrained in some degree by curriculum devised by others. </li></ul><ul><li>Psychological Learning- This concept is defined as the learner becomes involved in a mental process that is responsible for searching out information. The learner makes their own decisions, set their own goals and becomes one’s own learning agent. </li></ul><ul><li>Information provided by Huey Long at http://faculty-staff.ou.edu/L/Huey.B.Long-1/Articles/sd/selfdirected.html </li></ul>
  4. 4. Student Motivation <ul><li>Key Factors that influence a Student’s </li></ul><ul><li>Motivation : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Culture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Decision-making skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Self-Awareness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Attitude towards education </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Attitude towards teacher </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Individualism vs. Collectivism </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Personality traits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Time constraints </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Locus of Control-defined as “the tendency students have to ascribe achievements and failures to either internal factors or external factors” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Information provided by Northwest Regional Education Laboratory at http://www.nwrel.org/planning/reports/self-direct/self.pdf </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. What can teachers do to support Self-Directed Learning (SDL)? <ul><li>1. Raise learners awareness in their role(s) in learning. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Allow learners to be involved in the decision- making process such as, but not limited to, when & how information is to be learned?, what topics are priority?, how it should be evaluated? </li></ul><ul><li>3. Allow learners to pursue their own interest; however, the learner does not have to have total freedom. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Provide a lesson plan or some type of directive towards the material. </li></ul><ul><li>5. As a teacher, it is important to focus in on the learner’s strong points and not weakness. If focused on corrections, it may encourage the learner to achieve only a few objectives rather than exploring new objectives & goals. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Encourage the learner to self-monitor. </li></ul><ul><li>7. Encourage meaningful learning by bringing “real-life” situations into the learning process. </li></ul><ul><li>8. Allow learners to use different strategies and models of learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Information provided by Eric Digest at: http://www.indiana.edu/~reading/ieo/digests/d169.html </li></ul>
  6. 6.           Example of Lesson Plan Overview & Purpose   The learner will be able to 100% correctly create and complete a “new blank action record” within 15 minutes by using the Raiser’s Edge Software. Standards Addressed   The learner will be able to meet standards set forth by the Foundation Policy and Procedure Manual   Teacher’s Guide Completion Date   Objective   Learner will have a understanding of the Raiser’s Edge Software System. 30 Minute Module WEEK 1 11/01/09-11/7/09 Materials Needed Computer System (Windows XP or Vista) Printer Raiser’s Edge Software       Objective   Learner will be able to fill in the blank fields on “Action Record” with a 100% accuracy rate. 30 Minute Module WEEK 2 11/08/09-11/14/09   Objective   Learner will be able to properly record contact notes on “Action Record Notes” tab in with a 90% accuracy rate. 30 Minute Module WEEK 3 11/15/09-11/21/09 Other Resources Policy and Procedure Manual COURSE ALLOTED TIME: A total of 2 hours to be completed within a 4 week period     Objective   Learner will be able to properly save the “Action Record” to Constituent Record. 30 Minute Module WEEK 4 11/22/09-11/28/09 Summary   Learner will be able to create and successfully use Raiser’s Edge Software to the workforce environment they are currently assigned to within the region.
  7. 7. Self-Directed Learning Tools <ul><li>Traditional Classroom </li></ul><ul><li>Web-Based </li></ul><ul><li>On-the-job training software systems </li></ul><ul><li>Books </li></ul><ul><li>Simulations </li></ul><ul><li>Teleconference </li></ul><ul><li>Personal Experiences </li></ul><ul><li>Television, Videos, CD’s etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Combination of any listed above </li></ul>
  8. 8. Preparing Your Program <ul><li>Define your course </li></ul><ul><li>Define outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Select an approach or type of self-directed learning </li></ul><ul><li>Select a tool for delivery of material </li></ul><ul><li>Plan an environment that is appropriate to your goals and objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Create an infrastructure for self-direction, self-motivation, and public presentations </li></ul><ul><li>Select an evaluation and feedback process </li></ul>
  9. 9. Summary of Project A, B & C <ul><li>Project A- Provide general information for self-directed learning and how it can be related to web-based distance learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Project B- Provide information that is web-based material for distance learners. The objective will be to properly use Raiser’s Edge Software. The material will be displayed on a web site that will include story boards, PPT, test, etc. The learner will be able to understand how to use a software system for recording purposes by creating “Action Record Notes” such as phone calls, meetings or client interaction. </li></ul><ul><li>Project C- Provide hypothetical information on how the information will be used for marketing purposes. Include information on evaluations and feedback. </li></ul>
