Instructional Design Workshop
According to the Commonwealth of Learning, the purpose of the workshop was to help Mzuzu University academic staff “gain an understanding and insight into how to design and develop instructional materials” for an open and distance learning setting. Specifically, the workshop was mounted to: • expose Mzuzu University academic staff to the theory of designing and developing open and distance learning materials; • offer the academic staff an opportunity to practice designing and developing open and distance learning materials; and • enable participants to produce at least one unit of open and distance learning materials by the end of the workshop. The workshop facilitator informed the Commonwealth of Learning that the latter objective would be difficult to accomplish within the timeframe provided. The facilitator could guide the participants as they developed the material, but the participants must be able and willing to work during the evenings to draft the learning material. The responsibility for completing the units lies with the participants, not the facilitator.
