Rigor

  • Reading time:1 mins read

Creating meaningful learning isn’t about aspiring to some ephemeral concept of “academic rigor.”

Determine what skill(s), process(es), or knowledge your learners should come away with and use those to craft your experiences. Inserting arbitrary difficulty spikes, busy work, or tasks designed to “weed out” learners is actively detrimental to, you know, helping people actually master the material.

And it’s often all an artifact of “Well, I went through this when I was in learning this, so they should have to now too.”
