Instructional System Design

Instructional System Design
This short guide (less than a 10 minute read) provides a framework that is composed of four models: While you can click any part of the above map (to include the Complex/Complicated Environments) to learn more about the topic, it is suggested you read the following first to see how the various models tie together. Instructional System Design — This guide to ISD uses the ADDIE model (analysis, design, develop, implement or delivery, & evaluation). It is perhaps the best know instructional design model and provides a solid framework for Learning or Instructional Designers. Note that ISD is considered a plug and play model in that it allows other model and frameworks to be plugged into it so that it can adapt to almost any learning situation or environment. While the model above shows that the ADDIE version of the ISD model is quite dynamic, the model below shows the various steps within each of the five phases: Here is a slightly different version of ADDIE: Agile Design

Chickering and Stephen C. A Hard Look at ISD In the February 2002 edition of Training magazine Ron Zemke and Allison Rossett wrote a follow up to The Attack on ISD with A Hard Look at ISD. In their opening section, they write, Many of the affronted challenged the magazine's right to make the critique it did and chose to berate both the authors and the experts whose views were cited. However, if the authors would go back and read the original article, they would discover that it was indeed an attack rather than a critique, for a critique raises not only the bad points, but also the good. In addition, their “critiques” were most often amiss. And finally, the title contains the word attack ( to try to hurt, injure, or destroy), not critique (a detailed analysis and assessment).

Coming to Grips with Reality: Multiple Learning Modes by Sharon Fulton Bevers “With limited access to technology, the learning model changed to multiple learning modes, becoming prerequisite skills for technology-enabled learning. Learners first needed to have self-management skills before they reached the stage Harold Jarche describes, where ‘Work is the learning, and learning is the work.’ Staff members now have more options and learning methods they can use.” I recently completed a project with a local government body that was combining the roles of two separate groups of employees into one. In their new role, the learners needed to know new methods as well as form new teams.

Choosing Web Design Colors : Web Design Portfolio & Guide When designing a Web site, most web designers give a lot of attention to two major factors: the design (choice of graphics) and the content. But what about the colors? This is one of the most important things to consider when designing your site. The colors of your Web site are important because they will define the mood and emotions of your visitors as well as reflect your identity and image branding. Color is symbolism. We say someone who is jealous is "Green with envy". The Death of ADDIE? In a recently received email solicitation for ASTD (American Society for Training and Development) membership, they are offering a free copy of Michael Allen’s new book Leaving ADDIE for SAM. Like many practicing trainers who also design and develop training material, I’ve used the ADDIE model my entire career to facilitate the process. ADDIE, if you aren’t familiar, is an acronym for the steps in this universally accepted instructional design process standing for Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation. This process, when used properly, is a key to success in instructional design. So, being intrigued by this concept of replacing ADDIE with another model, I did some research on the new model – SAM – which stands for Successive Approximation Model.

Gamification Strategies for Developing Air Force Officers by Fil J. Arenas & Andrew G. Stricker “Overall, offering learning activities in 3-D immersive learning environments (ILEs) provides the military learner with valuable experience to process information into knowledge, then share that knowledge and act on it to solve challenges to develop agile and adaptive leaders with the skills necessary for the profession of arms in the 21st century.” Developing a high degree of problem-solving skill appropriate to each career stage is an important function of military training from the recruit level onward. The ultimate goal of this training is agile, adaptive military professionals, particularly the leaders. This is more critical now than ever before. The US Air Force Air University’s Squadron Officer College (SOC) develops company-grade officers (CGO) into effective leaders (CGOs are second lieutenants through captains).

The Millennials Are Coming! Proven Engagement Strategies by Elisabeth Arellano When developing training for Millennials, don’t lose sight of the basics and get too carried away with gimmicks. Establish your business goals and work backward to achieve them with training activities. Most of us have heard the term “Millennials” and recognize that change will inevitably come, just as it always does, but we often don’t completely understand what specifically the “Millennial” shift may mean. We hear, for example, that Millennials have a different learning style, a different level of comfort with technology, a different culture, and a different way of relating to their workplace.
