Learning Designs – Overview (Sticky Standards #7)

This podcast explores Learning Forward’s new Professional Learning Standards, focusing on Learning Designs.

There are many factors as we select a learning design:

  •    the goals of the learning
  •     characteristics of the learners
  •     their comfort with the learning process and one another
  •     their familiarity with the content
  •     the magnitude of the expected change
  •     educators’ work environment
  •     resources available to support learning

Models have many common components: such as active engagement, modeling, reflection, metacognition, application, feedback, ongoing support, and formative and summative assessment, that support change in knowledge, skills, dispositions, and practice.

As we choose a learning design, we want to focus on promoting active engagement, deep learning, that inspires action.
