Connection to the work field
In the course, students build a theoretical knowledge base on learning and instruction. This is done by focusing on theories that explain how people learn and combine this information with practical design guidelines concerning the development of learning materials and instruction,. This way, students are prepared for their future role in education; either as an educational designer or educational consultant. The skills and knowledge that are central in this course, will help students prepare for their future careers in the educational designer or educational consultant. The skills and knowledge that are central in this course, will help students prepare for their future careers in the educational context.
Inhoud
This course discusses the background, design and effectiveness of learning materials. Designs often depart from three main theoretical assumptions stating that learning is more effectively supported when:
  1. people use a dual channel (text and picture) approach
  2. short term memory limitations are considered
  3. active processing is encouraged
These assumptions have led to a large set of instructional principles for the construction of learning materials. The course will discuss learning theories and design principles that are involved in different facets of learning (from collaborative learning to game-based learning)
 
Relationship with technology:
The lectures of Learning and Instruction will cover the main principles of learning. Students will be challenged to think critically about the design of instructional materials; how specific design principles trigger information processing in general, how human beings process and make sense of (new) information, and whether and how learning materials (e.g., learning environments, instructional videos) evoke meaningful learning. In this conrtext, the use of technology to design and offer learning materials (i.e., multimedia learning) will be thoroughly discussed.
