Reviewing Standard Sequencing Models and Organizing Content - Exercise
Reviewing Standard Sequencing Models and Organizing Content
Duration: 20 to 25 minutes.
In this exercise, you will use your knowledge of organizing content and the standard sequencing models to answer the following questions.
Keep in mind this scenario, from the previous lesson: You are working as an ID in your organization, and the head of human resources has come to your group with a specific need for the group to develop some training on working with difficult coworkers.
- Imagine you want to sequence a lesson on strategies learners can use to deal with difficult coworkers. The content that needs to be covered includes using a mediator, negotiation techniques, handling conflict, and formal consequences for inappropriate behavior. How might this lesson be sequenced?
- In a lesson on how morale affects turnover, you want to first provide an example of a disgruntled worker and how his attitude affects those around him and then move into how poor morale affects workers. This is an example of which sequencing model?
- In a lesson on different forms of communication, you decide to start with verbal communication and then move to other communication, such as nonverbal and cultural. This is an example of which sequencing model?
- In a lesson on handling conflict, you first begin with a topic on the different forms of conflict and then move on to how to handle each form. This is an example of which sequencing model?
- Answers will vary but may include the job performance model. In this case, you would begin with handling conflict and then move into a more complex topic, which would be negotiation techniques. The logical next step in a process of handling a difficult coworker would be using a mediator. Finally, the formal consequences topic would be appropriate, since this is a logical final step in the process.
- This could be the known to unknown model, as learners are likely familiar with disgruntled coworkers and then can move into learning about the theory of morale and the workforce.
- This could be the simple to complex model. Verbal communication is the most simple form of communication that most people deal with, moving to more complex communication ideas, such as nonverbal.
- This could be the dependent vs. supportive relationship, as the methods for handling conflict depend on knowing which conflict you are dealing with.
