Given the emerging trend of innovating Instructional Design process (ID) for Human Performance Technology (HPT) related application in order to more effectively addressing organizational performance problems in industries, it is necessary to prepare students majoring in Instructional Design or Educational Technology in terms of how they can apply and further develop the concepts and skills learned from the field of ID to a more complicated and challenging HPT setting for the increasing demand seen in job markets. This paper presents a case study on the design, development, and implementation of a graduate level HPT course for the purpose of better developing ID students for future HPT related tasks. Issues such as (1) locating potential HPT client in an academic setting, (2) the dynamic interaction among stakeholders, (3) Tools used to facilitate the communication (i.e. visual modeling method, WebCT), and (4) effectives of project-base learning for HPT courses are discussed.
