Propel’s Innovation and Design model combines cutting-edge research, learning science principles, instructional design, and tech-enhanced tools to create effective and engaging learning experiences. Our research focuses on workforce and industry credentials to ensure our courses are relevant and up-to-date. We incorporate learning science principles to promote effective learning for neurodiverse and ethnically diverse groups. Our instructional design principles organize learning experiences in a structured, learner-centered way. Lastly, we leverage tech-enhanced tools, such as our virtual learning platform Honor Learn, to promote the success of both faculty and students.
Learning science is the study of how people learn and how to improve the process of learning. It draws upon research from cognitive psychology, neuroscience, educational psychology, and other related fields to inform the design of effective learning experiences.
Instructional design is the process of creating educational or training materials and experiences in a systematic and efficient manner. It involves analyzing learners' needs, defining learning objectives, designing and developing instructional content, and evaluating the effectiveness of the instructional materials.
