Home: Design for Learning

No More Bird Units!
We may teach them, but do they learn? 

Do those students really understand how to use my univerity's databases for research?

Can those people who took my genealogy class in the public library really find their ancestors?

Did the library orientation lesson I did with the Grade 9 students really give them the skills they need to be successful as they pursue inquiry projects?

Was my instructional strategy effective in helping them to transfer their learning to new situations? 

And, how can I assess whether they learned or not?

This Knowledge-Building Centre explores these questions, and suggests strategies for leveraging library instruction for deeper learning. 

What's YOUR experience with designing for learning?
