Instructional Design

Implementing an Instructional Development Model encourages the establishment of guidelines for a systematic instructional methodology that provide well-developed & instructionally sound courses that are effective at delivering learner-centered instruction and linking to student outcomes & assessment.

Selecting the most effective instructional strategies to facilitate learning is a matter of creativity and sound judgment. Using 'best-e design will establish instructional objectives & student learning outcomes that address both content and mode of instruction in a manner that is clear and measurable, which will be communicated directly to the learners.
Using sound pedagogy, specific student learning outcomes, relevant up-to-date content, and effective educational technologies, instructional components and delivery mechanisms can take many forms within a course.

At the basic level, as shown to the left, instruction can be broken down into five major components: Course Design, Collaboration, Learner Support, Technology, and Assessment.

We assists educators with instructional development to support traditional, authentic, and alternative learning and assessment processes; and all course materials should be purposeful, accessible, logically organized, and available to students.
