EDUCATIONAL DESIGN (teaching-learning) : Introduction

Cloud created by:

This contribution is prepared as a conversation in common with the participants in the OLDS MOOC 2013: Open Learning Design Studio's Massive Open Online Course "Learning Design for a 21st Century Curriculum" (http://www.olds.ac.uk/). The paper proposes a different institutional, post-pedagogical approach to educational design.

Educational Design (teaching-learning)
Preliminary remarks OLDSMOOC
(i) Educational design to include both Instructional and Learning design. 
(ii) Educational design conceived as part of and within the specific institutional mission and related instructional programs (i.e., academic disciplines). 
(iii) Open Learning Design therefore still belongs to institutional concepts set forth by VAN DEN BOOM, W.J.G. & SCHLUSMANS, K.H.L.A. 1989. The didactics of open education – Background, analysis and approaches. Heerlen: Open University.    
(iv) With respect to curriculum: « From a broader curricilum perspective, it makes sense to pay attention to a coherent set of ten components that address ten specific questions about the planning of student learning (Table 54.1) » [p.744] in VAN DEN AKKER, J. & KUIPER, W. (2008) Research on models for instructional design. In : Handbook of research on educational communications and technology, 3e édition. Spector, J.M., Merrill, D.M., van Merriënboer, J. & Driscoll, M.P., eds. New York : Erlbaum, p.739-748.
The accent here is with the expression « about the planning of student learning » and interestingly enough most of the 10 concerns mentioned in Table 54.1 are not integrally determined by the institution or the course designer.
Table 54.1 accessible online > http://goo.gl/KTti9.
(v) Three cognitive maps were produced which clearly indicate that educational design in centered on student workplan.
All three are directly or indirectly related to the OLDSMOOC experiment (> http://goo.gl/nKvUZ). 'At a glance' design maps can be viewed individually:

EDUCATIONAL DESIGN (teaching-learning) : Introduction

Preliminary remarks #OLDSMOOC

  1. Educational design to include both Instructional and Learning design. 
  2. Educational design conceived as part of and within the specific institutional mission and related instructional programs (i.e., academic disciplines). 
  3. Open Learning Design therefore still belongs to institutional concepts set forth by Van den Boom and Schlusmans (1989) The didactics of open education.    
  4. With respect to curriculum: "From a broader curricilum perspective, it makes sense to pay attention to a coherent set of ten components that address ten specific questions about the planning of student learning (Table 54.1)" (Van den Akker and  Kuiper 2008:744] The accent here is with the expression "about the planning of student learning" and interestingly enough most of the 10 concerns mentioned in Table 54.1 are not integrally determined by the institution or the course designer.
  5. Currently, 3 cognitive maps were produced which clearly indicate that educational design in centered on student activities. All three referenced in the OLDSMOOC experiment. 'At a glance' design maps can be viewed individually (these maps are not attributed): Map #1, Map #2, Map #3

The processes depicted therein refer to other, more linear suggestions concerning educational design (curriculum design and delivery). 

Much of Education's interest with MOOCS and (distant) open teaching-learning lies within the institutional characteristics of open universities and the characteristics of the learners. Some unresolved (overlooked) questions still need to be addressed when (i) relevant institutional concerns are isolated, (ii) when distant learning & learners are adequately characterised, and (iii) when a general instructional/learning design approach will appeal to all or most academic disciplines. A student/learner work plan approach to learning or work based learning is develpped and proposed
