GDASTD November Meeting
"The Power of Learning by Observing:
Using GoAnimate to Develop Online Instructional Vignettes"
Bill Solomonson, Ph.D.
Much of our modern instructional design is based on the concept of vicarious learning, or learning by mimicking the behaviors of role models. However, the trend toward online learning presents a challenge: how can computer-based training provide learners the opportunity to learn through observing and imitating others? One solution: the use of instructional vignettes in online instructional design.
This presentation will provide attendees with both the background theory and the practical knowledge to create an engaging and effective instructional vignette. Bill will provide an update on the current trends in cognitive learning research as they impact the online instructional setting. He will also demonstrate GoAnimate, a low-cost, cloud-based software that produces instructional vignettes that promote vicarious learning.
At the conclusion of this session, learners will be able to:
5:30pm - 6:00pm Registration/Networking
6:00pm - 6:45pm Dinner
6:45pm - 8:00pm Presentation
