Build a Better Class with Instructional Design

Instructional design is a systematic approach to creating lessons that meet learner needs. There are many models of instructional design, and this class will focus on one of the most well-known, ADDIE. ADDIE stands for: 1) Analysis 2) Design 3) Development 4) Implementation and 5) Evaluation.

This course is useful for those who want to improve their instruction whether you are teaching patrons to use technology, creating online information literacy modules, instructing a large class, or helping students one-on-one. This course does not intend to make you an expert instructional designer – there are certificates and degrees for that. The class includes a worksheet for each section that provides an opportunity to apply what you are learning and get feedback from the instructors and fellow students.

Objectives: 
  1. Describe the five steps of the ADDIE instructional design model
  2. Explain instructional design techniques in the context of the professional practice of librarianship.
  3. Apply features of the ADDIE model to improve instruction
