Below is an article written by Ihsan and her husband. Within this article the authors discuss the intertwining of learning theories and instructional design models into effective instruction. As Ihsan stated in her interview, staying current within the field of education is necessary to be successful in the field of Instruction Design as the majority of faculty members who teach in higher education fall short in formal training. She describes five principles that can help IDers guide faculty members and/or clients towards a more seamless delivery of their materials.
Five principles of instruction have been identified that promote learning:
1) learners are engaged in solving real-world problems
2) existing knowledge is activated as a foundation for new knowledge
3) new knowledge is demonstrated to the learner
4) new knowledge is applied by the learner
5) new knowledge is integrated into the learner's world
For this week's discussion, reflect and share one of your own past learning experiences or create a potential learning experience that works through these five principles and how these promote learning.
