“learning experience designers” or “learning architects.”
A simple understanding of design is the famous quote “ Design is thinking made visual”. what is the process of thinking? what is thinking in the first place?
Our children go to school in order to learn a lot of professional skills in their life, but non of the schools teach thinking. The education system relies on implicit processes to teach thinking. however creative thinking can be a designed processes, sequences followed – in order -can produce creative thinking.
In going back to our original subject, learning designer, relies on thinking processes while visualizing an ideal path to the learner mind. the instructional designer use similar process of an architect designing a living experience in a house.
The house has to be safe, comfortable, practical, easy to live and move around. Designed effeicently so it can minimize cost
and maximize living experience for it is occupants.
Learning designer follows the same logic and the same path. she/he designs learning experience in order to facilitate knowledge acquisitions, skills, and competences.
Instructional design involves the process of identifying the skills, knowledge, information and attitude gaps of a targeted audience and creating, selecting or suggesting learning experiences that close this gap, based on instructional theory and best practices from the field.
Professional Instructional Designer aim, is to design and develop dynamic learning, engaging and practicing experiences, in order to facilitate learners in acquiring knowledge, skills and competencies in an effective and appealing manner.
I’m emphasizing “experiences” here deliberately, even though that isn’t always how others would describe the job. I think one of the crucial things instructional designers can (and should!) do is make sure that students have opportunities to actively practice what they are learning.
