Recording for the 12/2/2011 meeting: https://meeting.psu.edu/p73kn64p3r2/
Here is the agenda for our meeting this Friday, 12/2/2011, from 10:00-11:00am. We'll meet in 202K Rider (UP) and over the ether at https://breeze.psu.edu/PSULDC .
The semester is coming to a close & we're all crazy busy so I thought we'd use the December meeting to have a little fun. A month ago Jamie Oberdick, Associate Editor for ETS Marketing, came to me with an idea for his "Five questions with" interview series. If you're not familiar with it, Jamie identifies emerging trends in teaching, learning & research and then asks the folks involved with these trends to share their thoughts by answering, you guessed it, five questions. The series is light, informative, fun, & a good, quick read. I encourage you to check it out.
Anyway, last month Jamie came to me with an idea for 5 questions exploring Instructional Design in the 21st Century and I thought it would be a fun exercise for our group. Jamie agreed so that's what we'll be doing at Friday's meeting. Here are the questions we'll discuss:
What are some trends that really changed instructional design so far this century?
Are there any of them that you think were surprising or unexpected?
Was there anything that was pegged as a hot new trend that you think didn't work?
What do you foresee as something interesting on the horizon for the near future as far as learning design?
What are the benefits and the downsides of these trends?
So please, take some time, give them some thought, and on Friday we'll have some fun exploring them. Hope to see you there!
