This microlearning experience was developed as a prototype for young adult students and teachers using a flipped classroom approach. I designed it for a job interview I had.
- Responsibilities: Instructional Design, eLearning Development
- Target Audience: Young adult students
- Tools Used: 7taps, Padlet
Analysis and Design
The process began with a deep analysis and the verification of the school’s needs, with a focus on getting stakeholders on board with the approach. I initiated this process, similar to how I would onboard SMEs, by outlining key actions aimed at minimizing lead exposure.
Once these key actions were defined and the most crucial ones identified, the decisions for the design process became evident.
In the development phase, once I identified the most critical actions to prioritise, I put my SME hat on to create concise microlearning content for the specific subject of water resistance. This content incorporated a mix of formats, including text, audio, video, and multiple-choice questions.
I chose to focus on the essential ‘Lower Order Thinking Skills (LOTS)’ for the eLearning component, using a traditional flipped classroom strategy. For ‘Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS),’ we designed a scenario-based concept to be introduced during the microlearning experience and further explored in the classroom under the guidance of the instructor.
Results and Takeaways
I believe this project exemplifies effective eLearning implementation, following the classic ADDIE model for instructional design. I prioritised reinforcing foundational LOTS in preparation for in-class sessions whilst also introducing a HOTS concept that would be guided by the instructor in-class.
This memorable, concise, and interactive learning approach is expected to enhance classroom engagement and provide instructors with more time to cater to individual learner needs. Anticipated outcomes include increased student engagement and instructors reporting improved ability to differentiate between students.
Looking ahead, I’m excited to apply my instructional design and eLearning skills to projects focused on enhancing performance and making a meaningful impact.
