But when you look at the way Instructional Design is explained, it sounds like the most boring thing out. Here are a couple of examples:
- The process by which instruction is improved through the analysis of learning needs and systematic development of learning materials
- The practice of creating instructional experiences which make the acquisition of knowledge and skill more efficient, effective and appealing…Informed by pedagogically and andragogically sound principles’
Instructional design is about creating great learning experiences that give people the best opportunity to learn, to achieve their potential and succeed in their work. It's is also about giving the organisaiton the results it's looking for.
Instructional design is a science and an art.
The science is in knowing about adult learning principles; adult learning theories; cognitive psychology; the neuroscience of learning; learner expectations and mental models; flexible learning; technology assisted learning eg mobile learning, video learning, eLearning, online learning; blended learning; flipped classrooms; micro learning and 70:20:10.
The art lies in creatively bringing these concepts together in different combinations to design tailored learning programs that puts the learner at the centre of the learning experience and provides the solution that the organisaiton is looking for.
