What is Learning Design in Adelaide?
In Adelaide, we use a learning design method that involves developing, producing, and delivering educational resources and learning experiences through blended learning, online learning, in-person training, and other delivery formats. Our Learning Design practices are also based on tested pedagogical theories and practices. Our team of instructional designers bases its methodological approach to learning design on the ADDIE paradigm.
The Importance of Learning Design
Providing interesting learning opportunities and inventive learning materials is the aim of learning design. We use a learner-centred approach to ensure that the learner is at the centre of our growth throughout the entire process. Our instructional designers use their knowledge of the behaviours, routines, and preferences of adult learners in the workplace to inform the creation of efficient digital learning solutions. We are aware, for instance, that individuals in today’s culture are typically busy, on the go, and constantly carrying technology. One example of the adaptable training options and learning tools that can be developed is shorter eLearning or instructional design courses that can be read on a mobile device.
Types of Learning Experiences
One type of learning experience is face-to-face training, often known as facilitator-led training. In this scenario, a professional trainer is delivering the instruction to the students in a classroom. Both the student and the instructor may need to sign up for a virtual meeting platform in order to participate in training sessions via webcam. Students can access self-paced eLearning modules and examinations through eLearning, which requires access to an LMS. The combination of two or more elements from the above categories of learning experiences is what is known as blended learning. A training programme, for instance, can include both online and live sessions.
The difference between Instructional Design and Learning Design.
It’s common to use the terms instructional design, learning design, and even educational design interchangeably. A person with formal training in both teaching and learning, as well as current knowledge of the learning sciences, is generally shown to have these skills through their approach to educational design.
In universities, there are some differences between instructional designers in Adelaide and learning design. Adelaide eLearning designers usually work on several projects across a variety of subjects, requiring them to have a more broad range of experience, learning designers frequently work on one project at a time, allowing them to concentrate on one subject in depth.
We are always looking for talented Learning Designers, Instructional Designers, and eLearning Developers to join our national team on an independent contractor or casual employee basis to provide instructional design support on specific projects.
Our projects typically vary in length from 1 to 12 weeks, so we may be able to offer flexible engagements around your other commitments and availability (including work from home, flexible days and hours).
