Learning theories

Five Current Learning Theories. Learning theories unpack complex cognitive processes and provide useful mental models for educators to structure and design courses around, while also providing insights on best practice during and after learning experiences. However, even for the most experienced educator, navigating through the multitude of learning theories out there can be a daunting experience. Five Learning Theories.

A Brief History of Instructional Design

Origin Learning

Consequently, training programs which were based on the principles of learning, instruction and human behavior, began to be developed. The Programmed Instruction Movement – Mid-1950s to Mid-1960s. Behavioral objectives got another boost when in 1956, Bloomberg Benjamin and his colleagues developed the “Taxonomy of EducationalObjectives”. Instructional Design has come a long way.

Instructional Design: The Process – 1

Origin Learning

Instructional Design (ID) is a process or systematic approach to developing the various learning courses or programs. Enough has been written about ID and its various theories and models that define the various approaches or strategies to learning design. The instructional design theories have been the guiding beacon for the new IDs, however, if not properly utilised during the design phase, these theories lose their practicality.

The Evolution of Instructional Design

CommLab India

Psychologists and educators started researching the theory of instruction. Skinner’s Theory of Operant Conditioning (1958) states that learning results in changes in overt behavior. Reinforcement is a key element of his theory. The theory led educators to think that human learning can be enhanced if reinforcements are carefully controlled, to elicit the desired behavior. Bloom’s Taxonomy of the Cognitive Domain was published in 1956.

Setting Meaningful and Measurable Learning Objectives: The importance of goals

In this article, we’ll take a look at the theory behind setting well-defined eLearning objectives and explain how corporate trainers can produce measurable learning objectives with the help of some examples of meaningful and measurable learning outcomes. These theories, which are equally applicable for setting eLearning objectives , are based on a set of cognitive learning levels that training aspires to produce in a learner.

The RETAIN Model for Creating Effective Courses

TalentLMS

Faculty and training managers have the best interests and intentions in mind to develop learning programs for their learners. It is not uncommon to address eLearning content as games, especially when game-like elements like scores and time-based assessments are added to the program. The RETAIN model, developed in 2008, aptly describes distinguishing features in an eLearning program and their implementation level.

Can microlearning save eLearning?

Eventually, educational theory and what was happening in classrooms caught up to the demands of a changing society and workplace. Even before adding infographics, interactivity, games, humour, or animations, content that is precisely focused, learner-centred, and targets an optimal cognitive load, is exponentially more engaging than traditional eLearning.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Writing Less Objectionable Learning Objectives

Once youve hooked them in, then you can let them know what theyll be able to do afterward, but while if that were done *really* well, I still think its better to hook them in viscerally before you go for the cognitive realization of what theyll learn. Atleast in India, I guess most of us strictly follow Blooms Taxonomy and frame learning objectives. As usual, it all starts with the human cognitive machinery.

In a recent book claiming that television and video games were “making our minds sharper,&# the journalist Steven Johnson argued that since we value reading for “exercising the mind,&# we should value electronic media for offering a superior “cognitive workout.&# Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

Learning Visions

I come from an old-school approach: I sort of understand the technology, but I leave the graphics and programming expertise to others. The programming skills should be left to the programmers. Do you work in or favor a design shop where each person has his or her own role (ID, graphics, programming, QA)? I agree with Rupa when she says that knowledge of tools is an add-on while designing a training program.
