Theoretical Knowledge

Artifact: Bedside Manner Meets Online Presence

Description: My group created an online course proposal called Bedside Manner meets Online Presence. The objective of the course design is to teach healthcare professionals how to successfully conduct telehealth appointments while maintaining the traditional bedside manner one does during in-person healthcare appointments. 

 

Rationale: The challenge in this course development and design was to implement training for the developing field of telehealth. The course was built using constructivist and social constructivist learning theories. Through the course, we ask students to reflect on previous experiences in healthcare and to use those experiences while constructing new knowledge and skills regarding telehealth. We also take those past experiences and ask students to apply them through a real-world simulation exercise with classmates.

Artifact: Theory Analysis

Description: The Theory analysis was an assignment to assume the role of a selected theorist, analyze and then discuss, through their lens, one of the instructional interactions provided in the assignment. 

 

Rationale: The design challenge was to organically weave theoretical language from the point of view of our theorist while engaging the reader. This was an individual project and I chose Richard E. Mayer’s Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning (CTML). While reviewing a selection of instructional interactions provided, Click here to see the interactions, I chose several simulations to review. The style of my analysis was through a mock Amazon review. This allowed me to practice the personalization principle of CTML that states people learn better when words are presented more conversational (Mayer, 2021, p305). As I’m pretending to be Mayer, I’m also using his principles to analyze and describe pieces of the instructional interactions.
