Interview with Charles M. Reigeluth: Applying Instructional Design to Educational Reform
Simsek, Ali
Online Submission, Contemporary Educational Technology v4 n1 p81-86 2013
Professor Reigeluth emphasizes that the work of educational technology researchers should focus on advancing instructional design theories rather than investigating some trendy aspects of utilizing educational media in schools. He makes the point that such an orientation will provide a comprehensive framework for efforts toward improving education dramatically in the knowledge-driven societies of the twenty-first century. This is to say that nobody can transform schools without providing personally meaningful experiences for all learners in an integrated system of education. Professor Reigeluth has received many awards for his accomplishments and contributions in the field of educational technology and instructional design. Most of these awards were given by prestigious organizations and educational institutions such as Brigham Young University, AECT, AERA, ISPI, and Indiana University. However, probably his biggest award is witnessing that his ideas have been implemented by a number of school districts in the United Sates and influenced many others around the world. Considering his accomplishments and contributions that shaped our field over the years, we decided to interview him and he was generous enough to share his views with us.
