Hello, and welcome to Episode 1 of Using Visuals to Enhance Learning, where today’s essential question is How Do People Learn? Now, this question is significant because, as higher education faculty, we are responsible for designing instruction even though we are the subject matter experts and technically not instructional designers. In other words, we possess the expertise in our field but may not necessarily understand how to break down what we know and facilitate meaningful learning experiences for our students. And so it is, we find ourselves responsible for selecting instructional materials, developing instructional activities, assessing and evaluating learning, and then designing and delivering instruction online without much, if any, training on how to do so.
This episode lays the foundation for understanding how people learn. It focuses on the three memory stores–sensory memory, working memory, and long-term as a means of helping faculty fulfill their roles as instructional designers. This information challenges faculty to apply their learnings to the design of the course content.
I look forward to meeting you.
