The Role of Design Judgment and Reflection in Instructional Design
This chapter discusses the importance of design judgment in instructional design. It defines design judgment and distinguishes it from decision-making. The chapter also discusses the different types of design judgments that instructional designers make, and the factors that influence these judgments. Finally, the chapter provides guidance on how instructional designers can develop the skill to evoke strong design judgments.
Simulations and Games
Using simulation games, learners can explore real-world scenarios in a safe environment. Simulation try, simulation watch, simulation evaluate, and simulation play are examples of simulation game scenarios that can help students learn. It is critical to establish a theme for your game in order to bring balance between the tone, visuals, audio, video, text, and other elements involved in its development. In addition, learners should be presented with a variety of challenges of varying levels of difficulty. Finally, you should consider how to manage interactions in simulations and games. There are three common ways: Variables, Triggers, and Conditions. Learning through simulation games could help learners to comprehend new concepts and then apply what they learn in a safe and controlled environment
