In this week’s discussion, we will examine how instructional design is informed by student learning theory. Select one motivational and one learning theory that was presented in NUR 660 and apply them to the instructional design process (if you have not yet taken NUR 660, you have access to the textbook on VitalSource and your nursing texts also include learning theories).
- Identify the theories you selected
- Explain why you are drawn to these theories.
- In a practical/concrete way, discuss how they will inform your decisions as you design your online course.
- How might these theories help you to quickly adapt your curriculum to current events (e.g. the pandemic) or changes in the health care system?
Don’t overdo your answers to 1 and 2. Provide only enough information about the theories to support your answers to 3 and 4. Feel free to integrate these responses instead of thinking you have to answer them with a paragraph per question.
