It is one of the biggest problems in education. As soon as our learners transition from the educational setting to the workplace, they struggle to apply what they have learned in real life. The four-component instructional design model or 4C/ID model explains how we can design training programs that better prepare learners for –quickly changing– work environments. It is based on decades of research in cognitive psychology and educational science and provides design guidelines that can help you design educational programs to teach professional competencies.
If you want to know more about the model, then SHE can help. The 4C/ID model provides a large collection of design guidelines, and it is not always evident how you can apply these guidelines in your context. So, to help you understand the guidelines and get started with 4C/ID, we collaborated with 4C/ID founder Jeroen van Merriënboer to develop a brand-new two-day workshop.
In the workshop, you get answers to questions such as: when should I use the 4C/ID model? What is complex learning? What are the components, and why are there four of them? And what changes for students and teachers when I apply 4C/ID in my organization? You will work in small groups to design learning tasks,
supportive information, procedural information, and part-task practice for a realistic curriculum. You will be coached by members of the SHE staff with extensive expertise in health professions education. Lunch and dinner included!
The next workshop takes place at Maastricht University on 22 and 23 June 2022. This two-day face-to-face workshop has a maximum of 25 participants and will be provided in English. The workshop will be tailored to teachers, designers, researchers, and leaders in the domain of health professions education, but we
also welcome professionals from other domains.
