Instructional Design is a scientific and research-based approach to incorporating proven theoretical methods into practical scaffolds of pedagogy. Brain research has intensified over the years, and findings have started to a more unified design philosophy. This trend is seen everywhere, but more intensly in the growth and depth of literature on Instructional design applications. The message of the times is in the transformational need for all Instructional Designers. The environment is changing, the scenarios are changing and as always ‘Change is the only constant’. Speaking of change, I upgraded my Blog hosting, so I am providing this link to my old page, for those who missed it:
In this week’s blog, I want to address the inherent dynamism in design, by which the mindsets of Instructional Designers have to remain flexible. Writing a blog is a continuous building exercise which brings everything under the ‘hood’ & into a seemless synergy. I have not been doing enough writing, but I have started to see the benefits as I crank up my scripts. Blogging virtually allows all the theory to be mixed with the spice of good research, while being served on plates of best practice and observation.
So, who are the Customers of intelligent instructional design? This interactive group includes Educators, Organizational Leaders, Students, Lifelong learners and Researchers. Is their satisfaction measurable? The answer is ‘Yes’! This is why Intelligent Instructional Design measures and assesses clear and trackable indices. One of such indices is ‘findability’ in online courses.
I will be writing on findability next week. So, please subscribe to this blog, and a notice of publication will be sent to your inbox. I look forward to your comments on this week’s blog. Adieu
