As we develop these ideas and this model, we will attempt to communicate the ideas simply so that the ideas are accessible.
The following infographic is an attempt to communicate the essentials of building SRD-ARA learning responses.
The arrow along the bottom represents that the writer and the learners are both actively engaged in each aspect of the learning as they progress through the course/workshops/learning. For example, the learning developer does not abandon the understanding of the situation, the first step. The writer must keep in mind that the learners must explore the situation themselves. The writer must find ways for the learners to engage with the situation in order to learn from it. You can see this in the progression above. The arrow is meant to remind the viewer that there is movement back and forth as the learners engage with the material, with each other, with the situation and the people in it.
It should be obvious from this infographic that SRD-ARA learning is developed, delivered, and experienced differently than the way that most of us experienced our education. SRD-ARA calls for rebuilding what we normally think of as training or education. SRD-ARA is not accomplished through adding classroom discussions, activities, or projects. The objectives and assessments within the SRD-ARA model dictate that the learning be focused on more than the understanding of the topic and assessment of that understanding.
Hopefully the infographic helps understand some of that change.
