An instructional designer might apply the theory of Connectivism by creating learning activities that promotes group collaboration and an opportunity for discussion and at the same time allow for may different viewpoints in order to make sense of the information. One of the principals of Connectivism states that it is in the diversity of opinions that learning and knowledge take place. In my own teaching practice the only thing I do that would be remotely connected to Connectivism is when we debate controversial issues in science. The students work in groups on the pro or con side of the debate and are asked to research their topics. They are working mostly online and looking at the diversity of opinions that exist and the multiple viewpoints shared on the topic. I know that they have access to the most up to date information which is important in order for the knowledge to grow and evolve.
