Instructional Design Quizzes and Learning Activities #277

Instructional Design Quizzes and Interactions #277: Challenge | Recap

Formative vs. summative? Pedagogy vs. andragogy? Formal vs. informal? Flipped classrooms? Bloom vs. Gagne vs. Werner? Huh?!? 

When you’re first getting started in e-learning, it’s easy to be confused — and daunted — by the terms floating around the online training industry. It’s hard to sift through the theories, styles, and expert opinions to get to the heart of what you really need to know.

It doesn’t matter if you’re new to e-learning or you’ve been building online training for years. One of the best ways to learn something is to teach it. And that’s why this week’s challenge is all about crowdsourcing instructional design interactions!

Challenge of the Week

This week your challenge is to create a quiz or learning activity on an instructional design principle, model, researcher, or theorist.

You can create any type of quiz or practice activity you like. Go with the timeless multiple choice or true-false questions, or create something more playful using a custom quiz. You can make the quiz as simple or challenging as you like… Just keep it fair and practical.

I have an idea for this--tell me if you think this meets the spirit of the challenge. I'm going to create something for new clients who are recently thrust into learning/training for their departments because of Covid-19. I'm thinking of doing a learning design principles quick-guide in Rise to use next week. I've spent the last 3 weeks getting calls like this--tell me if this sounds familiar. Client: I hear from Joe you do e-learning. He was really happy with your work. He got promoted. Me: Yes, that's right. Great to hear that about Joe. Client: I'm in Field Sales and I was just asked to convert our 4-week instructor-led leadership development program into e-learning. Me: 4 weeks? Like 20 days? 160 hours of instruction?
