Technology, digital media and mobile access have changed how people learn. Today’s students want to be engaged and self-directed with digital content, available anytime, anywhere. This is a challenge for instructional designers as they create online learning experiences.
The Instructional Design and Technology - Learning Theories course is part of the Instructional Design and Technology MicroMasters program from the University of Maryland University College - UMUCx.
As an instructional designer, it’s critical to understand emerging learning theories including Bloom’s taxonomy and constructivism and how they relate to the way people learn in our digitally connected world. This course, which is part of the Instructional Design and Technology MicroMasters Program, explores the evolution of learning theories from traditional Socratic methods to emerging learning sciences. Additionally, you will explore curriculum design models using performance-based assessments to create effective and engaging learning experiences.
After a solid foundation of how people learn today, you will explore technology’s role in supporting and enhancing the teaching and learning process.
Previous background in teaching or professional development is a plus, but not required. Join us and launch your career as an instructional designer.
