Instructional Strategies for beginners

Thought I’d share a cool blog by someone experienced in training and Elearning development.

The blog: Upside Learning talks about something I haven’t heard about before.  It is the ARCS model, which is a problem solving approach to designing the motivational aspects of learning environments to stimulate and sustain students’ motivation to learn (as cited in Bhat’s blog).

ARCS is a four step learning process:

Attention

Relevance

Confidence

Satisfaction

This is the work by John Keller who looks into motivational theory and how to influence it.  An unexpected find, but very relevant for how this impacts instructional strategies.

As I navigate my way through this PIDP 3250 course and my PIDP 3240 course, I am beginning to make connections and link theory to practice.  This ARCS method as well as the other strategies posted on Moodle have been great resources.

Happy Thanksgiving.
