Published Date: May 16, 2013


Written for core courses in Instructional Design.


This award-winning text prepares the next generation of instructional design professionals by presenting open-ended cases that strengthen and encourage instructional designers to become adept at problem solving for a variety of real-world clients, preparing them to be successful at all aspects of ID—from conceptualization and analysis, to the execution of creative solutions on the job.


With its problem-oriented approach to instructional design, the Fourth Edition of The ID CaseBook provides 30 realistic case studies in a wide range of authentic contexts, from K-12 to post-secondary, corporate, and manufacturing. The cases and their accompanying discussion questions encourage students to analyze the available information, develop recommendations and action plans, and consider alternative possibilities in resolving ID problems.
