Historical Perspective, and Critique of Five Instructional Theories.
Snelbecker, Glenn E.
A historical perspective is provided of instructional theories, and some comments are presented on five papers from a session of the 1998 annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). There is a large array of contemporary instructional design theories and models, and the number of theories is increasing. Some ways of looking at instructional theories in this era of theory proliferation are discussed. Some ideas and issues related to the following session presentations are explored: (1) "Simulated Apprenticeship: The Goal Based Scenario" (Roger C. Shank, Tamara R. Berman, and Kimberli Macpherson); (2) "Learning Communities in Classrooms: A Reconceptualization of Educational Practice" (Katerine Bielaczyc and Allan Collins); (3) "A Design Theory for Classroom Instruction in Self-Regulated Learning" (Lyn Corno and Judy Randi); (4) "Collaborative Group Problem Solving: Learning Together" (Laurie Miller Nelson); and (5) "Structured Design for Attitudinal Instruction" (Thomas F. Kamradt and Elizabeth J. Kamradt). (SLD)
