I delivered a beta class last week, and I have been totally consumed with that activity. So sorry about the lack of posting!
The fall semester also started last week. This semester I am taking Introduction to Systematic Instructional Design. My organization (Education Services @ EMC) actually does a very good job with this, so the readings so far have been reinforcement of what I do at work.
However, this project I am doing is a little weird (developing training for a new rev of a new acquisition’s software), so there are lots of places to note where the system we have may need a few tweaks. Right now I am at the place where politics meet instructional design (it’s a scary place!).
We are reading Dick & Carey’s book The Systematic Design of Instruction. I have to design a 30-minute self paced course for the class project, and it can’t be one on configuring software. Rats! So far my ideas are:
- Teaching parents to text (part of an idea for a seminar on using technology to help aspie teenagers)
- Evaluating online information (doable, but my objectives will have to be rock-solid
That’s all I have. Any suggestions?
