Learning Design

The learning and teaching strategies found to be most effective and important for face-to-face delivery, can also be effective online. We incorporate these strategies into our learning design. They are (in order of their effect size):

  • dediciClassroom discussion
  • Scaffolding or mastery learning
  • Feedback
  • Reciprocal learning and peer tutoring/support
  • Learning goals/objectives
  • Spaced practice
  • Direct instruction
  • Meta cognitive strategies
  • Worked examples
  • Formative evaluation
  • Test enhanced learning or retrieval
  • Co-operative or social learning

Some of these techniques can be more challenging online (whether delivering training or coaching). For example, feedback is easier to obtain face- to-face. Facilitators can easily watch body language and facial expressions to gauge whether learners are following/understanding. Our facilitators therefore regularly ask for real time feedback from delegates when delivering online (see our online delivery policy).
