Learning Sequence Building Blocks: A Collaborative Design Tool

Wednesday, March 06 | 2:30PM–3:15PM ET
Session Type: Virtual
What can a visual sequence of a learning experience reveal about the effectiveness of the design? Learning Sequence Building Blocks is a simple, customizable tool that helps instructional designers and content experts work collaboratively to craft learning experiences that incorporate principles of Universal Design for Learning and promote active processing. In this workshop, you will map a learning experience and make design recommendations drawn from what the visual sequence shows and your own knowledge of research-based best practices. You'll also reflect on how this tool might be customized for your work and provide feedback for its overall improvement.

Outcomes: Map the sequence of elements in a learning experience and articulate the goals of each element * Review a mapped learning sequence and provide design recommendations drawn from research-based best practices * Assess the utility of using the tool in collaborative design work and propose adjustments to customize it
