Designers for Learning announces new 6-week instructional evaluation course

Gain experience for good. Learn by doing as you pay it forward in our new instructional evaluation course.

Designers for Learning’s brand new 6-week instructional evaluation course is enrolling now. From March 20 – April 30, 2017, you will learn by doing in our latest free project-based service course hosted on Canvas Network. Build your portfolio as you complete a real-world authentic instructional design challenge to evaluate and revise open educational resources designed in our prior instructional design courses.

What is the course focus and time commitment?

In this 6-week service course, gain both instructional evaluation and design experience as you evaluate, adapt, and redesign instructional materials from our growing roster of open educational resources on OER Commons specifically created for adult learners with low math and literacy skills. In addition, expand your professional network during an optional hands-on live “Design Slam” event on Saturday, April 15th. During the online Design Slam, participants will share and compare their evaluation findings and design adaptations with volunteer facilitator support. Plan to devote a minimum of 24 hours to the course (at least four hours per week from March 20 – April 30).
