A Systems-Based Model for Designing Instruction.
Hymel, Glenn M.
The task of designing instruction encompasses three major activities: preparing instruction, instructing, and evaluating instruction. The major activities comprising instructional design are most effectively accommodated when (1) a systems-based format is employed and (2) they are addressed at the three levels of instructional design: the program syllabus, course syllabus, and instructional unit levels. A systems-based model appropriate to preparing, implementing, and evaluating instruction at the program syllabus, course syllabus, and instructional unit levels can be derived from the conceptual and research literature considering the crucial components of: identifying and justifying topical coverage; stating objectives; identifying and/or assessing prerequisites; sequencing content; selecting instructional methods, student assignments, and resources; providing for diagnostic-prescriptive teaching; and evaluating in a summative fashion. The paper also relates the topic of systems-based instructional design to such current issues as mastery learning, competency based education, evaluating teacher effectiveness, and criterion-referenced instruction.
