A Review of What Instructional Designers Do: Questions Answered and Questions Not Asked
Kenny, Richard F.; Zhang, Zuochen; Schwier, Richard A.; Campbell, Katy
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v31 n1 Win 2005
The purpose of this literature review was to determine what evidence there is that instructional designers apply ID Models, as well as to establish what other activities and processes they might use in their professional activities. Only ten articles were located that directly pertained to this topic: seven reporting on empirical research and three case descriptions recounting development experiences. All ten papers pertained to process-­based ID models. Results showed that, while instructional designers apparently do make use of process­-based ID models, they do not spend the majority of their time working with them nor do they follow them in a rigid fashion. They also engage in a wide variety of other tasks that are not reflected in ID models.
