Looking Back on 2010 with ADDIE

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. Just about every model, trend, and best practice in the field supports one of the phases of ADDIE. So with this in mind, it seems appropriate to take a look at the articles posted to this blog over the past year and organize them according to how they jive with ADDIE. A = Analysis (analyze the problem/opportunity and its causes).

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. ADDIE is the basic backbone of our processes. Design. So what are your views on ADDIE?

7 Habits of Highly Effective Instructional Designers

Integrated Learnings

I was thinking about the book the other day, and I also started thinking about how those habits might translate for instructional design specifically. It's about being the source of solutions, rather than waiting for others to solve problems. As instructional designers, we can be proactive by observing business trends and building relationships with our clients. This is what we should do as instructional designers as well. By Shelley A. Gable.

Motivating The Instructional Designer

The eLearning Coach

Perhaps it hits you when you’re writing a storyboard to teach a poorly designed and uninspiring software program. But what about motivating instructional designers? When I was studying Instructional Design, a college professor once told the class that we were the learner’s advocates. Instructional Design is a selfless job in many ways, because it’s not about you, it’s about them—the learners. Share this on Facebook.

Emphasizing the “Doing” in the Nine Events of Instruction

Integrated Learnings

We know that Robert Gagne’s nine events of instruction is a helpful guide for designing engaging eLearning. But are you applying the model to design active training? If we’re clever about our design, every event can actively engage learners. For instance, you might present a workplace problem that learners can partially solve with existing knowledge. How do you design training to be as active as possible? By Shelley A. Gable.

Why an Instructional Design Degree from Bloomsburg University ROCKS!

Kapp Notes

So, let me describe why getting a graduate degree from Bloomsburg University's Department of Instructional Technology ROCKS and why our ID graduates can easily hold their own against non-degreed folks (and then some). But, in our Advanced ID class students apply that theory to a problem in the field. Every student must go through this process and deliver a WORKING product (not just design it). The mix creates grounded and not arrogant designers.

Jaime Casap – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

Learnnovators

The traditional classroom was designed and constructed to keep distractions out, to keep kids focused in the classroom. Or, a kid can be in his dorm room, think up a better way to create a social network of people as opposed to looking people up in a static library and you can create Facebook. Instead, I ask students what problem they want to solve. What problem spins in their head? What problem are they interested in?
