Implementing Instructional Design Approaches to Inform Your Online
Teaching Strategies

By Darina M. Slattery, PhD


The primary focus of any instruction should be to focus on the learning
outcomes or capabilities you are trying to achieve. Bloom (1956, 1964)
identified three types of learning outcomes:

**cognitive** (knowledge),

**affective** (attitudes, emotions, and values), and

**psychomotor** (skills). For each of these outcomes, instructors should
also consider the level of outcome they are trying to achieve. If you
are teaching cognitive skills, such as mathematics or language, you
should determine if you need your students to

**remember** (level 1),

**understand** (level 2),

**apply** (level 3),

**analyze** (level 4),

**evaluate** (level 5), or

**create** (level 6) (Krathwohl, 2002). Once you have determined the
level(s) of outcome, you should align your assignments to those levels.
A multiple-choice exam can assess level 1 and possibly level 2 outcomes,
but it will not assess students' abilities to apply, analyze,
evaluate, or create. Consequently, you will need to devise more
challenging assignments to elicit higher levels of performance from
students, using essays, problem-based learning assignments, and case
studies, for example. Find out how you can implement these strategies as
you fine-tune your own online teaching strategies.




Course Design for Faculty: Instructional Design Basics

This Magna Online Seminar is perfect for those of you who are just a
little lost, a little confused, or really want a glimpse of course
planning with a real-life instructional designer. This seminar will
focus on the prep work that happens before the syllabus is given to
students. Learn about course goals and how they should inform the
assessments you design, and how those assessments should then inform the
content you create and curate. Additionally, you'll gain insight on
how all of those elements, together as a unit, should guide you as you
write your course objectives.

**After viewing this online seminar, you'll be able to:** * Clearly
articulate the learning goals developed for your students

* Create objectives that reflect the student learning in the courses

* Construct assessments that align to the course learning goals and

* Develop a course plan for your online, blended, or face-to-face
course that includes topics, content, objectives, and assessments
