Evaluate – assess the quality of the instructional products and processes, both before and after implementation (p. 3). Wiggins, G. P., & McTigue, J. It would be another 20 years before the first models emerged, but the 1960s and 1970s gave way to extracting instructional technology and design processes from conversations about multimedia development (Reiser, 2017), which in turn produced more than three dozen different instructional design models referenced in the literature between 1970 and 2005 (Branch & Dousay, 2015; Gustafson, 1991, 1991; Gustafson & Branch, 1997, 2002). Babson Park, MA. Finally, models serve as a source of research questions as we seek to develop a comprehensive theory of instructional development. Are you following a sound design procedure, e.g., ADDIE? "These and other questions are typical for new students in the field of Learning and Instructional Design Technology. The following textbooks, chapters, and articles represent a broad collection of discussion, debate, and research in the field of learning and instructional design. Performance Improvement, 41(7), 41–46. Most instructional design models take into consideration a common or isolated concept of the learner, but recently, a strong call has been issued for a complete shift in our education and instructional design approaches to reflect our society’s changing educational needs (Watson & … (1997); Diamond (1989); Smith and Ragan (2004); or Pebble in the Pond (Merrill, 2002) models. (2004)., Cennamo, K. S. (2003). As instructional designers, we often follow the same process (ADDIE). Manila, Philippines: Southeast Asia Instructional Development Institute. Despite some claims that classic instructional design is dead, or at least seriously ill (Gordon & Zemke, 2000), there remains considerable interest in and enthusiasm for its application (Beckschi & Doty, 2000). (2000). Exploring teachers’ instructional design practices from a systems design perspective. Looking at the authors of various texts consulted in higher education (see Branch, 2009; Carr-Chellman & Rowland, 2017; Richey, Klein, & Tracey, 2010 for examples) versus those consulted in industry (see Allen & Seaman, 2013; Biech, 2014; Carliner, 2015; Hodell, 2015 for examples) confirms this dichotomy. Computer support for curriculum developers: A study on the potential of computer support in the domain of formative curriculum evaluation. Boston, MA: Cengage Learning. Gilbert, T. F. (1978). The book provides brief overviews of instructional design models, classifying them within the context of classroom product- and process-oriented instructional problems. These two examples help demonstrate what is meant by ADDIE being the general process and models being specific applications. Making instructional design decisions., Wang, H. C. (2007). Minneapolis, MN: Control Data Corporation. Each learning perspective is discussed in terms of its specific interpretation of the learning process and the resulting implications for instructional designers and educational practitioners.

The remaining four foundational areas of the Web-Based Instructional Design (WBID) Model are learning theories, systems theories, communication theories, and instructional design (ID) models. 16–31). Getting Started Welcome to Foundations of Instructional Design. This phase produces an artifact or plan that is then put into action during implementation followed by evaluating both learner performance and instruction effectiveness. B.F. Skinner coined the term technology of teaching in 1968 to describe PI as an application of the science of learning to the practical task of instruction. Is the instruction intended for a classroom? Learners should be active and use cognitive activity to … Constraint-driven software design: An escape from the waterfall model. When considering the models featured in Table 1, determining which one to use might best be decided by taking into account a few factors. [Athena Kennedy, ASU Online], Educate stakeholders involved in the ID process on what you do and why you do it. Human competence: Engineering worthy performance. EdTech Books. Consider the following examples. So long as a designer can align components of an instructional problem with the priorities of a particular model, they will likely be met with success through the systematic process.

Rather, those ID models with wide distribution and acceptance gain their credibility by being found useful by practitioners, who frequently adapt and modify them to match specific conditions (Branch & Dousay, 2015, p. 24). On one hand, scholars and faculty in higher education often continue to research and practice based upon historical foundations. (See Resources section for suggestions.) Because there are so many different ID models, how do we choose which one to use? "Where have we come from as a discipline, and where are we going?" (2006). (2006). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Educational Technology Publications. You can read more about these activities by going to the Tracking page. Shortly thereafter, however, Twelker, Urbach, and Buck (1972) noted that a systematic approach to developing instruction was an increasingly popular idea, but cautioned that instructional design (ID) methods varied from simple to complex. Analyzing and evaluating the phases of ADDIE. For example, Plomp’s (1982) OKT model (see Figure 5), which is taught at the University of Twente in The Netherlands, looks quite similar to the ADDIE process, but adds testing/revising the instructional solution prior to full implementation. Which events can cause iteration in instructional design? Larson, M. B., & Lockee, B. Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 21(4), 292–302. When OKT was initially introduced, online or web-based instructional design had not yet become part of the conversation. Similarly, a model is defined as a specific instance of a process that can be imitated or emulated. Researchers and practitioners have spent the past 50 years attempting to define and create models of design with the intent to improve instruction. This dichotomous view situates the perceived ongoing debate between the theory of instructional design and its practice and application. Survey of instructional development models (3rd ed.).

In practice, designers often draw upon personal experience and the wide variety of models, strategies, and theories to customize each instance of instructional design. Carr-Chellman, A. The intent here was to ensure that design decisions relating to technology-based resources were consistently applied across the instructional problem. 445–465). Instructional design (ID), also known as instructional systems design (ISD), is the practice of systematically designing, developing and delivering instructional products and experiences, both digital and physical, in a consistent and reliable fashion toward an efficient, effective, appealing, engaging and inspiring acquisition of knowledge. Training, 37(4), 43–53. The questions are answered while also taking into consideration the implementation and evaluation components of the instructional problem.
