After looking at Guerra Scale in my previous blog, I came across a reference to Gagnes nine events of instruction.
“Robert Gagne is considered to be the foremost researcher and contributor to the systematic approach to instructional design and training. Gagne and his followers are known as behaviorists, and their focus is on the outcomes – or behaviors – that result from training.” (Kruse)
Gagne’s book, The Conditions of Learning, first published in 1965, identified the mental conditions for learning, he describes the analysis of learning objectives, and how these different classes of learning objectives relate to the appropriate instructional design. Gagne created a nine-step process called the events of instruction, which correlate to and address the conditions of learning.
It is from this I decided to check my own Moodle Course Geology and Soil Mechanics to see if it followed Gagnes nines events, the results and back ground are outlined in the Embeditin File below.
