Pearson Learning Design Principles

Pearson Logo

Pearson has released a new website on learning design that takes a look at the research science behind how students learn and what works to help them in the learning process.  While in some ways they are trying to “upsell” resources for their textbooks, the resources linked below are a great way to review the research in each of these areas, get some examples for implementation, and do a self-assessment.

They have identified 6 learning design principles:

  1. Foundations
  2. Practices that foster effective learning
  3. Learning environments
  4. The nature of knowledge
  5. Learning together
  6. Moving learning science research into the classroom

Each of these design principles is broken down even further into key aspects of how people learn.  One of the greatest parts of this framework is the release of 43 documents that provide a summary of the research related to it, sample ways to implement it, learner impacts, and a self-assessment rubric so you can assess your courses/practices against the research science.  A white paper for the project is available here.

Below are links to each of the PDF files.   Continue reading
