A clear introduction to the fundamentals of instructional design and the concepts and procedures necessary for designing, developing, and evaluating instruction for all delivery formats.


This text simply and clearly introduces students to the fundamentals of instructional design—the concepts and procedures they need to know in order to effectively analyze, design, develop, and formatively evaluate instruction. This is not a textbook to be memorized, but rather a learning-by-doing resource to be used by students for creating their own sound, effective instruction. In it readers learn a systematic, thoughtful, inquiry-based approach to creation, which in turn helps ensure the success of students in their charge.


  • Designed to aid learning in several important ways, including an intuitive chapter organization, a model that presents research illustrated with applications, contemporary design examples, sample rubrics and exercises, and annotated references.
  • Emphasizes learning by doing with practical applications and instructional supports provided throughout.
