ADDIE isn't dead; how can it be?

Integrated Learnings

There has been a lot of discussion, and an infamous article or two, in our field about the death of the ADDIE model. As a reminder, ADDIE stands for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate. And if the attacks are based on the long timelines typically associated with ADDIE, then they make some valid points. And models such as ADDIE help us do so.

Integrated Learnings

Though a variety of models guide our instructional design work, I’d argue that ADDIE functions as the basic backbone of the process.
