Instructional Design and Technology Services

What is instructional design?

Instructional design is the systematic process of developing instructions using learning and instructional theories to ensure the quality of instruction. The process encompasses the analysis of learning needs and goals, the development of instructional materials and activities to help students meet the goals, and the evaluation of the instruction and learner activities to understand their impact on learning.
