Level of guidance

This factor describes the degree to which a learning design should direct the learner in the activities they undertake. For the lower levels of learning, a high degree of instructional direction is appropriate. This recognises that the setting will potentially be the learner's entry into the field and discipline. For higher levels of learning, a less directed setting is desirable as the learner recognising the learners' ability to make meaningful choices with better mental models upon which to build new knowledge.
