DOCUMENTATION AND DISPLAY: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?




It can sometimes be hard to distinguish documentation from display. One thing you can do is to look back at the five features of documentation:

  • Does the “display/documentation” involve a question about learning?
  • Is it shared back with the learners?
  • Does it involve more than one medium?
  • Does it entail multiple perspectives, and include adult analysis or reflections?
  • Does it help inform future learning experiences as well as revisit past learning?

You could also say that most documentation shows evidence of the learning process as well as product, and isn't just a record of what happened, but an analysis or interpretation of the learning that took place. The handout entitled Documentation: When Does It Make Learning Visible? may be helpful as well.
