There are a number of instructional design models often used to guide decisions on the sequencing of teaching and learning. These models can be useful when creating a storyboard, to help select the types of activities for different phases of the learning sequence.
For the purposes of this course, it doesn’t matter which design model you prefer. Choose one to guide the kinds of activities you will incorporate in the introduction, body and conclusion of your learning pathway.
Scan the following design models and choose one to guide your thinking for sequencing elements of your selected learning pathway. Think about the different components of the respective models below, and how they map to the introduction, body and conclusion phases of a learning pathway sequence.
- Gagné’s Nine Events of Instruction published by the Center of Innovative Teaching and Learning at Northern Illinois University.
- The 5E Model developed by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study – summary published by Lesley University.
- Gilly Salmon’s Five Stage Model for designing e-tivities (e-learning activities) for an online course.
