Teaching ID & service learning

Last spring, Elizabeth Boling, Andy Gibbons and I did a presentation at the AERA conference on different approaches we take to teaching instructional design. For part of the presentation, I put together a video to describe the service learning approach we take at the University of Saskatchewan. We negotiate external contracts with non-profit organizations to carry out actual projects for them. It’s exciting and demanding, and it creates a powerful and unpredictable learning enviornment that I’ve come to like a lot.

If you’re interested, here is the video (approx 13 minutes) broken into two parts.
