You will learn to design or redesign a course using M. David Merrill’s First Principles of Instruction, which utilize comprehensive real-world tasks for demonstration, application, testing, and integration.Merrill's First Principles of Instruction synthesize most instructional design theories, and accommodate most learning theories. Merrill contends, and research confirms that learning is promoted when it:

  • Is Task-Centered. Learners are engaged in solving real-world tasks and problems.
  • Includes Activation of the learner’s existing knowledge of the real-world task, and the provision of a framework for learning the real-world task.
  • Includes Demonstration of the real-world task.
  • Includes Application of the real-world task.
  • Includes Integration of the ability to perform the real-world task in the learner’s work and life.

You will learn the 5-Star process, then you will briefly complete a high-level design of your own course. You will leave with a high-level design, confidently prepared to tackle redevelopment tasks. You are encouraged to have your device and/or printed materials on hand for the course you want to design or redesign.
