Online Learning Environments: A Report of an Instructional Design Case Event
Koh, Myung Hwa; Branch, Robert Maribe
Association for Educational Communications and Technology, 27th, Chicago, IL, October 19-23, 2004
This is a discussion about the role of a case or authentic scenario in an online learning environment. Using authentic cases for intentional learning promotes effective, cognitive, and affective transfer between learning space and performance space. Creating an online case event provides an opportunity for learning design professionals to use instructional systems design in an authentic, teamoriented, web-based learning environment. A case approach aids the Instructional Systems Design (ISD) learning process and helps to facilitate further research of online learning environments. Case studies have been an effective tool for developing professional knowledge across disciplines, however, case events dedicated to the study and practice of instructional design is limited among learning services professionals. The purpose of this discussion is to offer educational benefits about learning and practicing instructional design within an online learning environment.
