Week 9: Last Reflection

It is hard to believe that this is my final reflection for the Instructional Design course. I started off unsure of what to expect and unsure of my abilities as I read through chapter 1 of our textbook. However, the more reading I did and the more articles I found elevated me to a newfound... Continue Reading →


Week 8: Project B |ID Reflection

Project B has been more challenging than I expected. I knew that when I set out to offer training for a real group of teachers in a neighboring district it would challenge me in ways that Project A did not. Project A allowed me to work closely with someone I already worked well with and... Continue Reading →

Week 7: Designing Instruction

What does it mean to design instruction?  To design instruction means to analyze learning and performance problems and then design, develop, implement and evaluate the instructional and non instructional processes (Reiser 2001). The main purpose of instructional design is to improve learning. I believe that even though instructional design has been used since the 1960's... Continue Reading →

Week 6: Self Regulation

I have not studied this method at all, surprisingly. However, I am not surprised after reading about it that this method helps with... Continue Reading →

Week 3: Instructional Design Reflection

What do you think about instructional design so far?  I have decided that instructional design is far more challenging that I, initially, thought when I started this course. I felt confident in my abilities to instructional design and redesign instructional documents. However, as our first project comes to and end, I am still fighting the... Continue Reading →

Week 2: Analysis & Design Reflection

Part I: What have you learned from the analysis? What are you planning to do with it? Activities to include?  The analysis finding report was helpful in evaluating the bottom line of the problem of the original lesson, as well as helping both the instructor and myself grasp a better understanding of what is important for the...

Week 1 Part 2: Personal Theory of Learning

Earlier this week, I took an Education Philosophy Quiz. This quiz is made up of multiple questions with answer worth an assigned number of points (Sadker & Sadker, 2018) . My results were not surprising at all. The following statements best reflect my views on education: Education should be a responsibility of the family and... Continue Reading →
