An Alternative View of the Instructional Design Process: A Response to Smith and Boling
Gibbons, Andrew S.; Yanchar, Stephen C.
Educational Technology, v50 n4 p16-26 Jul-Aug 2010
A recent literature review by Smith and Boling (2009) critically examines the received view of instructional design in educational technology. Smith and Boling conclude that the foundational literature characterizes design in a way that leads to a constrained understanding of design, especially by novices. They suggest that as a field we move toward a broader conception of design. The authors of this article build on the Smith and Boling argument and propose an extensive list of topics that should be included in a more robust description of design that avoids the limitations of our current characterizations of instructional design. (Contains 2 figures.)
