  Title:  01-Wf - Design Layers and Functional Design: A Hands-on Experience
AllAcademicCode:  1396560
    Time: 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM Tuesday, Oct. 23
Description:  This workshop will offer hands-on experience in applying the theory of design layers and functional design to specific instructional design problems. The theory of instructional design layers provides a new view of design architecture that leads to a more direct and common-sense application of instructional theory. The theory of design layers leads to the idea of functional design, an approach currently used in other design fields but not in instructional design. Hands-on experience will demonstrate to participants the value of these ideas in solving everyday instructional design problems.

AllAcademicCode:  1397933
    Time: 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM Tuesday, Oct. 23
Description:  In this instructional design practice workshop in teacher education, participants will explore the instructional design principles behind digital game-based learning and how they can be used to design and develop digital learning games. In general, digital game-based learning requires a lot of financial and technological resources, which makes it difficult for it to be available to a larger number of K-12 teachers and students in certain parts of the country. This workshop will teach participants strategies to design and develop digital game-based learning at low cost, providing an opportunity to any student to experience this instructional trend, while keeping instructional soundness.
