For training to be effective, learners need clear and relevant objectives to assess their own learning. If learners are engaged in the process (they’re invited to participate), they enjoy themselves while learning!
Instructional design contains:
- Clear learning objectives
- Opportunities for learners to self-assess their learning
- Evaluation criteria mapped to learning objectives
- Engagement and humour encouraged in the classroom
As a technical writing instructor at British Columbia Institute of Technology, my students frequently remark how engaging my classes are—and people always learn more easily when enjoying themselves!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your instruction and guidance in class. Having teachers who have a passion for what they teach makes the difference.
