Instructional Design and Learning Theory

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Amy Grincewicz (Administrator), Mar 19, 2012

This document would have been of great use to me when I was in my introductory classes of instructional design.  Many of the references were sources I used to create a foundation in instructional design information.  I created a similar outline for use in my courses.  However, I think students would learn more if they created their own outline of relevant information rather than being provided the information.  With that said, this document would be helpful for me in teaching instructional design since it hits on all the major points. 

The quality of the content is extremely high.  The document provides an overview to the introductory concepts a student in instrucional design must know.  The material can be used in the introductory lessons of a intro. to instructional design course. 

Ease of use could use some work.  The bolding and changes in text size for the sections help readers with organization, but the document has alot of text and isn't very flexible since if you want to navigate back to a section you just have use the scroll bar. 


Technical Remarks:

It would have been since to have a clickable table of contents at the begninng to help with the organization and ease of reviewing.  In additon, knowledge checks and/or application questions would have been helpful after each section would aid students in the learning process.
