Learning is a challenge. To design a workable learning experience is even more challenging. It is like moving art with a well-defined purpose and goals. This book is intended to work as practical guide to improve the prospects for you to succeed with your learning design project. It includes four parts, beginning with an introduction to learning design including the latest trends within the field. Then the knowledge and skills are gradually built up by describing tools to use for emphatic human-centred and efficient learning design. To in the third part exploring the 6i-model and put it into practice. The 6i-model is a framework that includes a foundation of six stages and guidance for designing excellent learning experiences and other creative projects. The last part of the book is targeting present and future prospects for you as a Learning Designer.

The focus is set on eLearning, but not in the traditional meaning of the word, since the e now stands for experience not electronic. As the old fight between digital advocates and traditionalists has lost its meaning in a human-centred approach to learning design.


In addition to all this in order to improve the visionary impact, some of Leonardo da Vinci’s eternal design ideas are presented in the book, ending in sixteen design thinking codes by the master to guide your work.

—Dr. Kevin Leman, New York Times best-selling author of Have a New Kid by Friday

Turn Conflict into Cooperation
 
Many parents suspect their strong-willed child is deliberately trying to drive them crazy. Difficult to discipline and seemingly impossible to motivate, these children present unique, exhausting, and often-frustrating challenges to the those who love them.
 
But strong will is not a negative trait. These same children have firm convictions, high spirits, a sense of adventure—all the makings of a great adult. In this book you’ll discover how to channel that passion and determination in positive ways as you build a healthy relationship. Through insights gained from strong-willed people of all ages, you’ll…
·         better understand how their minds really work.
·         discover positive ways to motivate your strong-willed child.
·         learn how to share control without compromising parental authority.
·         apply key tactics to survive a meltdown.
·         get practical tips for parents who disagree, blended families, and single parents.
 
Packed with  immediately useful strategies to drastically reduce the level of tension in the home (or in the classroom), You Can’t Make Me shows how you can start today to build a stronger, more positive relationship with your strong-willed child.

What is understanding and how does it differ from knowledge? How can we determine the big ideas worth understanding? Why is understanding an important teaching goal, and how do we know when students have attained it? How can we create a rigorous and engaging curriculum that focuses on understanding and leads to improved student performance in today's high-stakes, standards-based environment?

Authors Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe answer these and many other questions in this second edition of "Understanding by Design." Drawing on feedback from thousands of educators around the world who have used the UbD framework since its introduction in 1998, the authors have greatly revised and expanded their original work to guide educators across the K-16 spectrum in the design of curriculum, assessment, and instruction. With an improved UbD Template at its core, the book explains the rationale of "backward design" and explores in greater depth the meaning of such key ideas as "essential questions" and "transfer tasks." Readers will learn why the familiar coverage- and activity-based approaches to curriculum design fall short, and how a focus on the "six facets of understanding" can enrich student learning. With an expanded array of practical strategies, tools, and examples from all subject areas, the book demonstrates how the research-based principles of Understanding by Design apply to district frameworks as well as to individual units of curriculum.

Combining provocative ideas, thoughtful analysis, and tested approaches, this new edition of "Understanding by Design" offers teacher-designers a clear path to the creation of curriculum that ensures better learning and a more stimulating experience for students and teachers alike.

Novellsamlingen ”Gränsfarare – Noveller som rör sig genom tid och rum” drar in läsaren i berättelser som vandrar genom klaustrofobiskt slutna rum famlandes efter det avlägsna ljuset. Gränsfararna är de som vägleder läsaren, ibland med en mörk dov underton. De har funnits i alla historiska epoker, i alla skeenden, i en kamp mot tidens oskick till förmån för människans gränslöshet. I dessa nio noveller får vi träffa några av dem både från nutid och historisk tid, i en kamp för kvinnlig frigörelse, mot religiösa dogmer, och sökande efter rättskaffenhet. Detta är berättelser om uppror och frihet i ett välbekant samhälle men som ibland vandrar över gränsen till mytologin och andra tidsepoker. De rör sig således framåt på olika nivåer så som undertiteln förkunnar: Noveller som rör sig genom tid och rum.

I mobergsk anda, men med nya perspektiv, får vi träffa Emmy som i unga år drabbades av en grov oförrätt och de normer som då rådde tvingade henne till lidande tystnad. Så en dag kommer hon tillbaks till där allt en gång började. Eller Zoe som trots unikt hög kompetens helt i enlighet med välfärdsstatens normer placeras att städa golv på deltid på grund av sitt ursprung, men bryter sig ur denna fångenskap. Eller den tidlösa kampen mellan humanism och religiösa dogmer där den senare allt för ofta utvecklas till ett monster. Eller hur män med makt, för det är oftast män, står maktlösa när förändringens vindar far, men de fortsätter ändå att slåss under blodstänk som Don Quijote mot väderkvarn efter väderkvarn. Detta är några av de perspektiv som gömmer sig i denna novellsamling.


Den börjar på stranden i en dag fylld med hopp och slutar i ett fyrtorn och ett nödvändigt uppbrott. Detta är noveller som vägleder till personlig utveckling.
