Week 6 Theories of Learning and Instruction II
Questions of Week 6:
1. Would you recommend that an instructional designer adhere to one of these theoretical perspectives consistently or work out their own eclectic philosophy? Why? (Do not forget to add pros and cons of your position)
2. Watch the video and answer: Which learning theory is applied in this classroom? Why? Is it really possible to implement such a classroom, what are the requirements and challenges?
Take a position and answer this question.
3. As an Instructional Technologist, present your own "philosophy of instruction". How do you realize this philosophy to real life settings? Specify what audience you have in mind (e.g. children in school, college students, adults in nonformal education, corporate training...). Do not forget to cite relevant literature to support your arguments - No opinion paper please!
Hint: You might then think about the factors that you have to consider when planning a lesson, such as motivation, presenting new information, allowing practice, providing feedback, evaluating, etc.
