MODEL-DRIVEN DESIGN: SYSTEMATICALLY BUILDING INTEGRATED BLENDED LEARNING EXPERIENCES

Stephen Laster

Abstract


Developing and delivering curricula that are integrated and that use blended learning techniques requires a highly orchestrated design.


While institutions have demonstrated the ability to design complex curricula on an ad-hoc basis, these projects are generally successful at a great human and capital cost.


Model-driven design provides a sustainable approach that reduces some of the cost of complex curriculum development and improves the sustainability of curriculum innovation.


Systems thinking is a perspective for going beyond events, to looking for patterns of behavior, and to seeking underlying systemic interrelationships which are responsible for the patterns of behavior and the events.

 

Model-driven design provides the ability to share models and learning units beyond the borders of the institution.
