Reflect on your first instructional design project. What went well? What did not? What will you do differently the next time?
This was my first experience designing an instructional project. I have done some PowerPoint lessons, but it was the fist time that I followed a design plan. I learned a lot with the project, but I know that I still have a lot more to learn. It has been a good experience, because it is not finished yet. The lesson was supposed to be posted online, but since my department is moving slowly from Dreamweaver to Drupal, I don’t know when I will be able to post it. To be able to finish the project, I will contact some students and ask them to go over the lesson and take the tests, so my supervisor and I can evaluate if it was successful or not.
I won’t be able to say what went well until I get the response from the learners. One thing went well: I know today more about instructional design than I knew before I started the project.
What would I do differently? I would give myself more time to work on it. Designing instruction is not an easy task, and it takes time to go thru all the steps.
I would like to say thanks to my partner Justin, who reviewed my project and helped me to correct some mistakes.
By the end of the week I will be able to write an evaluation of my project.
