Learning Design | Educational Technology
Through this incredible volunteering opportunity, I curated online courses on various topics available free-of-cost to learners all over the world through the Catcat platform.
I apply design models to curate high-quality courses using existing online materials. Additionally, I review the instructional design of other learning paths and provide feedback to curators.
I started this volunteer role in September 2019.
This Goal and Instructional Analysis was the first step in determining the desired post-instruction behavior for learners. This instruction was focused on helping adult patients reach their weight loss goals through a 12-week diet and exercise plan as outlined by the American Heart Association. This exercise helped me to understand how to break down each step to define the scope of the instruction. As I moved through the different steps, I came to understand the importance of having a goal and instructional analysis as the first step in the instructional design process.
I created this analysis on March, 2017 for the EDUC 6406 Instructional Design course in the Educational Technology and Leadership master’s program at George Washington University. The grade I received was “A”.
This Instructional Treatment Plan was the next step after completing the goal and instructional analysis. Here, I go deeper into preparing effective performance objectives, applying Robert Mager’s theory which includes a condition, a change in behavior, and a criterion or standard for each performance objective. This assignment helped me to craft powerful learning objectives and to develop my understanding about assessments and other instructional strategies, such as: pre-instructional activities, information presentation, student participation, testing, and follow through.
I created this plan on April, 2017 for the EDUC 6406 Instructional Design course in the Educational Technology and Leadership master’s program at George Washington University. The grade I received was “A”.
Using the ADDIE Model, this Action Plan was developed as part of a Learner Needs Analysis for creating an Instructional Module Unit (IMU). This IMU was an orientation for guest English teachers arriving in Korea who needed to develop a deeper understanding of the Korean education system and culture.
The plan was developed to outline the actions needed to deliver an effective instruction. This was helpful for organizing ideas, resources, and tasks. Additionally, it helped me identify the stakeholders for each phase.
I created this needs analysis on October, 2017 for the EDUC 6405 Developing Multimedia Materials course in the Educational Technology and Leadership master’s program at George Washington University. This was a group project with R. Rogers and J. Braddock. The grade we received was “A”.
