THE DESIGN PROCESS

MY ROLE

Graphic Design and Instructional Design. Apart from graphic design, I was responsible for collaborating with subject-matter-experts to create mobile/online learning modules.

A flipped classroom model of instruction was newly designed the maximize the learning experience of Internal Medicine Residents at the Columbia University Medical Center.

Due to the confidentiality of this project, a more detailed description of the mobile modules will be updated upon full implementation. For the time being, please see work samples below.

Step 3

IDEATION

Let’s say for example, I am teaching a group of students what a circle looks like by using a flashcard, drawing it on the board, and having them trace circles. For a typical learner, that would be enough instruction for them to transfer their knowledge and understand that a clock is a real life object in the shape of a circle. However, children with autism struggle to make this transfer of knowledge because they have difficulty with generalization. To them, the circle on the flashcard is different from the circle drawing on the board, which is also different from the circular clock on the wall.

The Columbia University Medical Center Internal Medicine Department will be implementing the flipped classroom method of instruction into the program starting Fall, 2018. As part of the test and review research, a comparison will be made between a control group and intervention group.
