Supplantation versus Generative Models: Implications for Designers of Instructional Text.
Smith, Patricia L.
Two instructional design alternatives are described and discussed: (1) the supplantation model of Ausburn and Ausburn (1978), where learning strategies are built into the instructional materials; and (2) a generative design model, where strategies are "built" into the learner. These contrasting models are proposed as representing the extremes of a continuum that illustrates the ratio of the amount of processing support provided by the instruction to the amount of cognitive elaboration required of the learner. The relative advantages and disadvantages of each model are examined, and a line of research is suggested for investigating the conditions under which each model, or compromises between the two models, might be appropriate. This discussion is related to current philosophical questions in the field of instructional design. Examples are used from the design of instructional print. Twenty-six references are listed. (LMM)
