Blog no. 6 – Good instructions

Good instructions are short, clear and comprehensive. The instructions will answer to the questions that are rise when reader is reading the assignment. Those instructions take lot of time to prepare. However, when the first version is ready, it is easy to use it as a backbone when new instructions are prepared.

In the blog task, the following slide include very important note. “Resources: how much text are you able to read and give feedback on?” (Räsänen, 2012). This is also very important note when you think your instructions. How much time and effort you can put to your instructions AND to your feedback and readings. Those things should be in equilibrium but doing the instructions, lecturer have to remember design the lectures so that there is clear bounds at the end. Bounds that are supporting the learning, teaching and timing.
