Instructional Theory

Instructional theory integrates behavioral sciences with empirically based teaching practices. Behavioral scientists have discovered and continue to discover different ways people learn. Current research supports the notion that there are multiple approaches to teaching content, which impacts how instructional design is approached. Therefore, instructors are in an evolving process of matching appropriate instructional design models to the needs of students.

You have been asked to provide an in-service training for fellow instructors in the learning environment where you work. Create a presentation that provides an introduction to instructional design in which you complete all of the following requirements.

B. Evaluate the usefulness of two different instructional design models and their related methods for your instructional setting (e.g., a rural elementary school, an urban Title 1 high school; a corporate training environment).

C. Recommend one instructional design model for your instructional setting.

1. Justify the appropriateness of this model for your instructional setting.

2. Include a visual aid that accurately represents all stages or steps of your recommended instructional design model.

D. Create an original lesson plan/instructional plan that uses the instructional design methods of your recommended instructional design model from part C, including the following:

• state core curriculum/student achievement standards, or organizational goals/standards

• a clearly stated objective

• a detailed instructional plan

• a method of assessment

1. Describe how all stages or steps of the recommended instructional design model influenced the lesson planlesson plan/instructional plan design process.
