IDT 601 Instructional Analysis I
This course provides an introduction to the instructional design process. Students will start with the identification of a problem or need that can be addressed by an instructional intervention. Weekly course work will then culminate in conducting a complete instructional design front end analysis (IDFEA). Major components to the IDFEA include: gathering data to inform the intervention, identifying and describing a target audience and learning setting, and providing an overview of tasks, instruction, and content that will be associated with the proposed solution to the problem or need. In addition, students will take part in professional network development (PND) activities and discussions to create connections to other professionals via social networking technologies in the field of instructional design and technology.
