Taking the Studio Online: Designing a Studio-Based Instructional Design Course
Abstract: This design study presents a detailed overview of the design and development of a studio-based course in the field of learning design and technology. This studio-based course was designed to introduce advanced graduate students with diverse backgrounds to the practice of instructional design. The presentation will explain how the course was designed following the steps of the ADDIE model (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation). Reviewing each step of the process, the presentation will reflect on challenges and decision points that determined the course content and structure and ultimately shaped the learning experience. In particular, the presentation will focus on how the concept of a face-to-face studio class was transformed to an online context as a result of the pandemic. Attendees will be invited to discuss the merits of studio-based learning and how it is evolving as a result of today’s hybrid learning environments.
