Teaching, Doing, and Sharing Project Management in a Studio Environment: The Development of an Instructional Design Open-Source Project Management Textbook
Randall, Daniel L.; Johnson, Jacquelyn C.; West, Richard E.; Wiley, David A.
Educational Technology, v53 n6 p24-28 Nov-Dec 2013
In this article, the authors present an example of a project-based course within a studio environment that taught collaborative innovation skills and produced an open-source project management textbook for the field of instructional design and technology. While innovation plays an important role in our economy, and many have studied how to teach innovation, few have looked closely at teaching the social aspects of innovation that are a critical part of most innovative organizations. Project-based learning has been shown to be helpful in preparing students to work on real-world projects, and utilizing a studio environment, where collaboration is fostered, can provide an added measure of authenticity. In this article, the authors discuss the characteristics of this course and its project-based approach that seemed to support collaborative innovation.
