On Friday I had the pleasure of giving the closing session in the eLearning Guild Online Forum series on Instructional Design. I suppose presenters aren't supposed to say this, but I had so much fun with the group that had virtually gathered to conclude this two day event. I know there are a number of points in the recording where I am cracking up at some of the very funny and insightful things that came up in the chat. I just have to say, sometimes I'm amazed at the depth and quality of the interpersonal interactions that occur when a group of self-directed people with shared interest find each other, whatever the platform or medium of exchange.
In any event, we had a great conversation about instructional design models. And ADDIE. (Of course, how could I not???) I've been struck by just how many of us in the learning technologies biz use ADDIE as the thing we share, one of the primary things we have in common.
But for today, I went on a different quest, one looking for info about ID models. I found this fantastic resource courtesy of Dr. Martin Ryder at the University of Colorado-Denver School of Education. Everything you ever wanted to know about instructional design models theories, frameworks, you name it:
Hope you enjoy the list. And a big "Hey!" to Martin.
