1 The Instructional design model

According to Internet Innovations:

  1. The Scenario: Defined as a "use case" scenario, the learners are told to solve a problem formulated as a question. They have to play a given role.
  2. The Task: Defined a set of precises questions designed to acquire factual information needed to asnwer the question.
  3. The Product: Defined as a guideline on how the answer must look. It contains a synthesis of information including reflection to insure that the answer is constructed. If possible the answer should be an authentic product. E.g. a directive if students have been asked to play "manager".
