9S Learning Model


This interactive of the 9S learning model, based on a graphical representation by Dr Sarah Hoyte, is a re-visualisation of Robert Gagné's 'Nine Steps for Instruction'. The brief commentary around each step demonstrates that it is as suitable for Online, Distance and Flexible Learning (ODFL) as it is for contact-based learning contexts. It is also highly suited to the vocational context. This work represents the ongoing, collective, efforts of the Principal Learning Designers at the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand.
