Updated and revised, the sixth edition equips educators with practical skills for successful instructional design. Two new chapters have been added to offer the most current information in the field.
One addresses the unique design challenges and opportunities when working with different technologies. It also illustrates how to apply and adapt the design model when working with these technologies. The other presents a combination of information on the ID proposal and project management.
A new section also discusses the alternatives to the traditional design process. In addition, educators will find more information about the role of the designer, which they’ll be able to apply in the classroom. This exciting text offers a solid rationale and a set of specific procedures for designing instruction.
Key Topics: Grounded in current instructional design trends, the latest cognitive psychology research, and constructivism, Designing Effective Instruction establishes a foundation for systematic instructional planning, and then presents a ten-element model that combines both behavioral and cognitive philosophies to create a flexible, heuristic framework for designing both traditional classroom and non-traditional, interactive learning programs.
