Assignment 2: Learning Design


Designing your approach to learning and teaching, and the rationale for your design
(25% of final grade)

See Course Schedule for Due Date


ASSIGNMENT
Goal

Develop a conceptual model (design) for your online distance learning course.

Skills development
Development of skills in the design of learning and teaching experiences;
Cultivation of skills in operationalizing knowledge of learning theories into models of teaching and
learning.
This activity is designed to engage you into articulating your knowledge and understanding of a learning theory
or several learning theories that you will use as the foundation for your operational model of learningthe
learning design for your online distance-learning course. Be sure to articulate clearly the theoretical foundation
of your learning design and a rationale for its selection. Your design must pay attention to the following
elements of any good teaching and learning transaction:
a) Statement of assessable learning objectives
b) Subject matter content representation;
c) Activation of learning and engagement of students with that subject matter content;
d) Socialization and interaction between and among students;
e) Assessment of learning objectives; and
f)

Provision of feedback to students

See Course Assignment Guidelines in the Assignments Details and Q&A Content area for additional
