Unlocked: Wednesday, September 1, 2021 6:00 AM EDT – Tuesday, September 7, 2021 11:59 PM EDT. Must post first.
Reminder to please respond to all questions, one question at a time. Indicate the topic in the title of your response, for example: Topic # 1, Topic # 2 or Topic #3 and be sure to reply to at least 2 classmates per topic.
Topic #1 – Models of Design Comparing with the ADDIE Model
Compare and contrast the ADDIE Model with another instructional design model (such as Dick & Carey or Kemp – or another model that you have researched). What are the strengths and weaknesses of these two different models? Having reviewed the training models and methodologies from this week’s reading list, which approach would you be inclined to use or suggest for designing and developing training? Provide your rationale. Be sure to use at least two resources from the class.
Topic #2 – Bloom’s Taxonomy
Bloom’s Taxonomy, originally created in 1956, was a framework consisting of six major categories: Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation. With Knowledge as the basic foundation or precondition, the other categories were presented as “skills and abilities.”
A revised taxonomy updated Bloom’s original categories (see above figure developed by Vanderbilt University Center for Teaching) by using verbs to label each category and subcategories (rather than the nouns of the original taxonomy). These “action words” describe the cognitive processes by which thinkers encounter and work with knowledge. How can this model be used in developing and designing training/learning objectives? Be sure to use at least two resources from the class.
Topic #3 – Training Needs Analysis (TNA) The Training Issue
Step 1 of Assignment 1 provides the foundation for an effective and valid training needs analysis (TNA). Review step 1 from Assignment 1 and post a brief summary/draft of your training issue from an organizational perspective. Include high level information about the organization and the high-level problem or challenge driving the need for training (not an individual level skill deficiency for this step). Your response should be a maximum of two paragraphs.
