From Teaching to Designing Effective Learning Environments
Rethinking learning design gains increasing significance, once we consider the key characteristics of Millennials, such as their need for excitement, their digital and fast-paced lives, their quest for practicality and interactivity, as well as their aspiration for creating meaning through their education and future careers. This seminar captures the essence of the situation and presents some ideas for effective design of content (curriculum), delivery (pedagogy) and evaluation of learning (examination).
The objective of this training course is to familiarize the educators with design thinking tools and techniques that they can apply to create effective learning environments. Adapting a design thinking lens, we conceptualize the course as a service, the educator as the service designer, and the students as the customers of the service. We will then examine several hands-on thinking tools and reflection mechanisms that can help us as educators in creating meaningful and engaging experiences for the students and ourselves in the context of the course.
