The intentional design of distributed education

  1. 1. The Intentional Design of Distributed Learning Prof. Frank Rennie
  2. 2. Intentional Design of Distributed Learning 1. The Learner 2. The Options 3. The Media 4. The Tools 5. Interaction 6. Evaluation
  3. 3. A System for Distributed Learning 1. The Learner 2. The Options 3. The Media 4. The Tools 5. Interaction 6. Evaluation
  4. 4. In Summary…. • 1. Establish your Learning Framework. • 2. Agree your Course Style Template. • 3. Select your Media Palette • 4. Sketch the Architecture of your mix • 5. Confirm your Delivery Strategy • 6. Pilot and Evaluate your Distributed Learning System
  5. 5. Stage 1 - The Learner • 1. What do you want the learners to understand by the end of the module? • 2. Write 10 to 12 key points/concepts. • 3. From these write 3 learning outcomes • 4. Consider how knowledge of the concepts and outcomes could be tested. • 5. This is your Learning Framework
  6. 6. Stage 2 – The Options • 1. How can you make available what the learner needs to know? • 2. Does each element need to be synchronous or can it be asynchronous? • 3. Prioritise which elements need text, audio, images or video learning resources. • 4. Consider the cost implications for your situation. • 5. This is your Course Style Template.
  7. 7. Stage 3 – The Media • 1. Which media is best suited to help you develop understanding in the learner? • 2. Make a list of the elements that would benefit from text, audio, images, and video • 3. Make a list of the types of technology that you think may be available to you. • 4. Try to prioritise according to ‘comfort factor’ • 5. This is your Media Palette
  8. 8. Stage 4 – The Tools • 1. How can you utilise these media tools in an optimum and integrated manner? • 2. How will learners access these tools? • 3. How can you provide alternatives? • 4. How can you assess their efficiency for the tasks? • 5. This is your Distributed Architecture
  9. 9. Stage 5 - Interaction • 1. How can you get the best mix from this distributed architecture? • 2. Do you need to provide training? • 3. How do you enable learner choice? • 4. What mixes are possible and pragmatic? • 5. This is your Delivery Strategy
  10. 10. Stage 6 - Evaluation • 1. Does it work for the learners? • 2. How easily can learners access resource materials? • 3. Are the methods of interaction appropriate for the tasks? • 4. Can learners/staff measure progress? • 5. This is your Distributed Learning System
