Instructional design/CA articulation
Have you ever...?[edit | edit source]
Have you ever learned to cook under the guidance of your parent, friend, or someone else? Do you remember your learning experience in P.E. classes? Or even recall your observation of the way a child learns to speak.
These are examples of apprenticeship-like teaching and learning, in which “students” observe expert practices, and achieve learning goals step by step with the help of the “teacher”. The cognitive apprenticeship presented in this lesson introduces an instructional approach that is similar to traditional apprenticeship.
If you are a teacher or instructional designer, this lesson is going to help you understand the basis of cognitive apprenticeship and learn to use the articulation method in future instructions.
Learning Objectives[edit | edit source]
After taking this lesson, you will be able to describe how to integrate the articulation method into instructional scenarios. The integration description must include at least one articulation “way”. During the process of achieving this key objective, you will be able to:
- Identify the key features of cognitive apprenticeship approach;
- Identify the conditions in which cognitive apprenticeship approach is applicable;
- Define the articulation method;
- Distinguish the three ways of articulation;
- State the specific strategies underneath the three ways of articulation.
Activities[edit | edit source]
In this lesson, you will have the opportunity to go through introductions to cognitive apprenticeship approach and the articulation method, and practice what you have learned through exercises and forum discussion.
