Connectivism in Practice for Instructional Designers

I delivered my last presentation to the iDesign group at University of Alaska Fairbanks this morning (I have a remote presentation on the role Google in educational settings tomorrow, and then I’m presentation-free until the CNIE conference next week). The presentation: Connectivism in Practice for Instructional Design. The concepts were generally well received and attended to with good discussion. Toward the end of the session, I presented a model for learning resource development that was viewed as being too complex. I’ve presented this model before (and used it for evaluating organizational communication within a university context several years ago). For some reason, it hasn’t had much traction. Perhaps the feedback from this group explains why!


  1. What was the feedback from the session? Can you elaborate more please?

    Hi Christy – the comments on the session were positive with regard to the general content and discussion. When I presented the model itself, the comments related to the complexity included. While it was acknowledged as being inclusive of key areas designers need to consider, it was seen as being too time consuming for most design situations.
