Six Thinking Hats for Instructional Design
UPSIDE Learning has provided an interesting example of applying the six thinking hats for instructional design (link
). The authors have chosen the following hat sequence: White, Black, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue.
In this case, a client has given them a course outline to consider under the White hat. Their approach is to initially judge under the Black hat and report their findings. Under the Red hat, a quick "gut check" is conducted. I envision this as a "Go/ No Go" decision point which conceivably is done with the client. This 3-hat sequence is often referred to as a Risk Assessment
If the client is on board, then a Green/Yellow/Blue Positive Ideas
short hat sequence follows.
