Understanding Quest-Based Learning


My colleague, Chris Haskell, recently pulled together some of his research findings into a white paper on Understanding Quest-Based Learning (QBL) in the classroom. I thought the graphic comparing a traditional “gradebook” course to a quest-based course was interesting. The non-linear aspects of QBL do provide a mechanism for creating personalized learning pathways through curriculum. Our current challenge is to keep drilling into the data to find out what variables promote a successful non-linear learning experience, and how we can better incorporate those into our designs. Enjoy!
