RSI and Instructional Design
Jan 27, 2015
I am currently working on an e-learning program with an SME who is only experienced in the world of traditional instructor led training. The linear content I have received is rather tedious to get through and in an effort to make it more meaningful and engaging I incorporated the RSI model as part of the instructional design. Unfortunately, the SME is having a hard time buying into the model. He said that he didn't like it because he thought he was being "quizzed" before being primed with any information. I countered by saying the RSI model gives learners the opportunity to challenge their current assumptions of the content while also practicing it in a safe environment. Further, I stated that user's RSI scores are not recorded within the LMS and that it doesn't really matter if they get the right answer or not because we are giving them the correct information through feedback.
I'm not sure what else I can say. Has anyone had to overcome a resistant SME? How did you handle it? Does anyone have any easy to understand resources I can share with the SME to help convey the benefit of interactivity and creating meaningful interactions.
Thanks in advance.
