Historical Context and Future Development of Instructional Theories: Comments Regarding Four Instructional Theories.
Snelbecker, Glenn E.
Some reflections are made on the historical context of instructional theory, and comments are presented on some papers from a session of the American Educational Research Association's 1998 annual meeting. A number of current innovations in instructional theory can actually be found among topics that have been discussed at various times in the 20th century and earlier. With the proliferation of instructional theories at present, it may be useful to ask of each what value it adds to research and practice. Some ideas inspired by the following papers are explored: (1) "From Brain Research to Application" (Susan J. Kovalik and Jane R. McGrehan); (2) "Open Learning Environments: Foundations, Methods, and Models" (Michael Hannafin, Susan Land, and Kevin Oliver); (3) "Landamatics Instructional Design Theory and Methodology for Teaching General Methods of Thinking" (Lev N. Landa); and (4) "Recapturing Education's Full Mission: Educating for Social, Ethical, and Intellectual Development" (Catherine Lewis, Marilyn Watson, and Eric Schaps). (SLD)
