Type 2: Task-guided

Characteristics

This learning design is characterised by the following:

  • learning is set within a realistic context, task-oriented approach (eg resolving a problem scenario; completing a project)
  • the learner acts as an employee/worker within a virtual workplace
  • the learner is guided through a series of activities designed to achieve the pre-determined product/endpoint
  • the activities cause the learner to deal with the inherent content and information through decisions and reflections needed to complete the activity
  • gaps in knowledge are self-identified by learners and filled as needed through accompanying resources
  • the learning finishes with the completion of the product/task
  • learning is assessed through measures of success in holistic tasks involving application of knowledge.
