This course aims to provide learners with the opportunity to develop knowledge of contemporary theories and principles that inform learning and instructional design, ranging from the more traditional learning contexts and environments to those using, for example, social networks and mobile technologies. In order to do this, learners will engage in processes of collaborative learning with their peers in online discussion forums to explore contemporary theories and perspectives of learning, learners and their learning contexts, as well as contemporary theories and practices of learning and instructional design, to inform the design of a learning program that will address a particular learning/training need in their context. In addition, some detail of plans and strategies for evaluation will be addressed.
