Ensure that your students achieve your program outcomes by identifying the courses that teach the content and skills in these outcomes, and then incorporating learning activities that should prepare students to achieve these outcomes. Along the way, we will examine 1) the nature of well-formulated, assessable learning outcomes, 2) an approach to program design that lays out the students’ learning process, and 3) guidelines for selecting learning activities and designing assessments.

Strategies for Complex Skill Development

Training has a satisfactory set of options if your goal is information delivery or procedural training, but what about creating meaningful training for complex skill development or for the not-so-procedural problems that show up more and more in the workplace? What about creating learning for those situations where your SME can’t tell you what good performance looks like, except to say, “Well you know it when you see it”?

Frameworks from complexity science and the science of expertise development can help you diagnose these kinds of complex learning problems, and can help point to eLearning design strategies that can actually address and support complex skill development. You will learn how variables like frequency of use, tacitness or explicitness, and level of automaticity affect skill development.
