Our method to empower your learners through applying the instructional design principles
How we work to crafting effective and impactful e-learning experiences
Our analysis and production are based on the Conversational Framework by UCL Knowledge Lab. This is a tool applying the different theories of learning and design for any type of learning (face-to-face or online), at any level. The framework embraces the six main types of learning, and how each of these cycles of iterative activity helps learners develop their concepts and practices and the relationships between them.
With this methology, we break down the complete learning experience into small teaching-learning sequences to guide learners in a more focused way along their learning journey and lead them to successful course completion. Every learner is different in his or her needs. That is why is important to know the target group of the respective course in order to decide which tool would be most appropriate to use in the course. For example, tools such as wikis or shared documents allow learning in a synchronous and collaborative way, while forums or the comment function in a blog or thread foster asynchronous discussions.
Following the methodology, the six different learning types are:
Listening to a lecture or podcast, reading from books or websites, and watching demos or videos; learn what others have discovered, about expert ways of thinking and practising, and what is known already in their field.
Discussion, practice, and production. This is necessarily done through participation and negotiation with peers. It produces something this is through debate and sharing with others.
Learning through discussion requires the learner to articulate their ideas and questions, and to challenge and respond to the ideas and questions from the trainer, and/or from their peers.
Explore, compare and critique the texts, documents and resources that reflect the concepts and ideas being taught.
Practice enables the learner to adapt their actions to the task goal, and use the feedback to improve their next action.
Learning through production is the way the trainer motivates the learner to consolidate what they have learned by articulating their current conceptual understanding and how they used it in practice.
