Reviewing Instructional Design Foundations - Exercise
Reviewing Instructional Design Foundations
Duration: 10 to 15 minutes.
In this exercise, you will use your knowledge of the foundations of instructional design to answer the following questions.
- Students are in small groups in a classroom sharing their best practices for using a particular computer program. What type of learning theory does this involve?
- What does CIP stand for, and what are its three fundamental components?
- What learning theory puts the learner at the center of knowledge?
- A group of employees is taking a class on dealing with difficult colleagues. The class is working through the difficult scenario of dealing with a difficult employee. The group must role play possible conversations with the employee and work on developing best practices for dealing with the situation. The instructor acts as a guide, but the learners must take responsibility for developing their own conclusions. What type of learning theory or theories does this involve? Why?
- Situational learning, which involves learning as participation.
- CIP stands for cognitive information processing. The three forms of memory in the CIP theory are sensory, short-term, and long-term.
- Constructivism, developed by Jean Piaget, puts the learner at the center of the knowledge, constructing information from his or her own experiences.
- This is most likely the constructivist approach, since learners are working to construct their own knowledge.
