URC Brown Bag Series: User-Centered Design for Instructors
Join us for User-Centered Design for Instructors presented by Amy Deschenes and Emily Coolidge-Toker.
In this workshop participants will learn how to apply content strategy and user-centered design practices to learning objects. Learning objects include deliverables like handouts, slide decks, videos, webpages, Canvas modules, Libguides, and others. Participants will leave the workshop with a concrete action plan for creating an effective learning object.
To participate you can either bring a new project you’re working on or you’ll help out a fellow participant with their project. During the workshop you’ll learn about user-centered design techniques. Then, you’ll work in break-out rooms with a team to develop content goals, user stories, and learning goals for either your own or another participant’s project.
At the end of the session you’ll have a game plan for a learning object, and be able to successfully apply user-centered design strategies to future learning object development.
- An overview of Fink’s Taxonomy of Significant Learning: Fink’s Taxonomy of Significant Learning
- A short discussion of how to effectively use Fink’s to determine pre-work and in-person learning goals for one-shot library instruction: Think before you flip: Using Fink’s Taxonomy of Significant Learning to design flipped library instruction
- A concise introduction to using Fink’s to establish learning goals; includes concrete examples. Note that this is part of a larger toolkit for instructors (re)designing semester-long courses, and the Designing Activities section will likely also be of interest. Adventure time!
