BACKWARD Learning Design


What is “Backward Learning Design“?

Educators BEGIN at the END goal, working backwards.  Here’s how:

Q1.   How will the learner be DIFFERENT at the end of this course?  What should learners be able to think and DO at the end of the course?

Q2.  How will I know they have CHANGED <at the end and along the way>?  What will I use as evidence?

Q3.  What readings, experiences, activities, lectures, or other elements need to be in place –online, in class, or both–for the learner to succeed?

Other models of instructional design include the ADDIE model, SAMR model, Systems Approach Model (Dick and Carey Model), and the Morrison, Ross and Kemp Model.
