Instructional Design – A Start Point

Instructional Design is a process:  Instructional Design is a systemic process derived primarily from instructional and learning theory focused on creating instructional materials in accordance with exacting specifications.  The process requires analysis of learner needs – end goals, subsequent design and development of instructional materials and modalities, and the employment of metrics – assessment – evaluation to determine the overall effectiveness of the process proper.

Note:  By one formal definition a “process” has a logical start point, however, it has no end point.  Therefore, an authentic process entails continual evaluation and modification that “shapes” the process to the best model possible at any given point in time.  Instructional Design is ever evolving and in a very real sense of the word, it is organic.
