This mind-map of ideas has been generated from some background reading involving the ADDIE instructional design model which is an acronym for analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation(Wikipedia), my intention is that this plan displays the process.
I intend to present my flexibility plan based on the Conference and Events paper (Level 5 applied) in the 2nd year of the Diploma in Travel and Tourism. The course relies on blended delivery with on-line tools and lecturer direction, in the initial stage. I hope to introduce course blogs so that they can plot their progress and start to take ownership of their learning. The students will set up their own companies and co-ordinate a virtual conference and plan, develop and implement an event, presenting their e-portfolio's as the final assessment.
Weaknesses of the plan so far; The success of the process relies on collaboration and communication between the students to complete their part of the activities.
It relies on the lecturer knowing the process of blog set up and maintenance, not so sure at the moment.
How do I assess this ? I need to progress the peer assessment criteria.
Strengths; The students have a good foundation of knowledge from previous travel and tourism papers. There is a good structure in place and room for flexibility in terms of content, instructional approach, delivery and logistics (Collis&Moonen,2004). The scheduled class time becomes tutorial and meeting time for the students as the project progresses, with direction from the lecturer.
My vision for the paper; To be able to collaborate with other OP departments to plan, prepare and implement an event/conference e.g. Excite, themed dinners, graduation celebrations, promotional tours using mentors to help the students with the project management.
