Updated and revised, the sixth edition equips educators with practical skills for successful instructional design. Two new chapters have been added to offer the most current information in the field. One addresses the unique design challenges and opportunities when working with different technologies. It also illustrates how to apply and adapt the design model when working with these technologies. The other presents a combination of information on the ID proposal and project management. A new section also discusses the alternatives to the traditional design process. In addition, educators will find more information about the role of the designer, which they’ll be able to apply in the classroom.
