Episode 22: April 17, 2014
In this episode I interview Dr. Dave Moore who is an associate professor in Instructional Technology and the Chair of the Department of Educational Studies at Ohio University. Dr. Moore discusses concept attainment and how media can be used to help in this process. He provides an insightful perspective on teaching concepts that is based on research he has conducted. Dr. Moore provides a number of great pieces of advice about designing instruction to help individuals attain concepts.
Two research articles I suggest reading from Dr. Moore are:
- Moore, D. R & Hsiao, E. (2010, October). Video games: How can their visual conceptual transaction structure be used in instruction. Paper in the proceedings of the 2010 AECT International Conference: Anaheim, FL.
- Moore, D. R. (2006). Selecting Evaluation Items for Judging Concept Attainment in Instructional Design. Journal of Interactive of Interactive Online Learning at http://www.ncolr.org/jiol/issues/pdf/5.1.7.pdf
