Bookmark and Share

Instructional design is an exciting course that teaches you the essential skills to systematically address instructional problems and develop instructional solutions thatare timely and effective. "Instructional Design" is probably the most central course in the Instructional and Performance Technology (IPT) curriculum. The importance and depth of this subject could argue convincingly for coverage over more than asingle semester. In the brief time we will spend together youwill learn and practice the skills to conduct instructional design at most phases of the process.
Learning Outcomes:
By the end of the course you will be able to: (1) apply the main principles and concepts of instructional design to develop simple instruction; (2) systematically design instruction to address several different types of learning; and (3) draw from learning theory in developing appropriate instruction for learners in your organizational context. The knowledge and skills gained in this course will enable you to develop effective instruction in a variety of content areas, with different types of learners, and in various milieus. This course will give you a good start in developing more advanced skills as you expand your instructional design repertoire.
Pedagogy Approach:
I have chosen the simple ADDIE instructional design model as an organizing framework for the MERLOT materials that I added to this collection. Its components are Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation.
