This competency introduces several important instructional design models and discusses their benefits and limitations. Like learning theories, instructional design models help learning architects recognize and implement effective learning frameworks and strategies. In addition, Competency 2 covers backward design and universal design for learning (UDL) principles and explains how they can be integrated with instructional design models.
This course is also available in the Theories & Models Track.
Upon completion of this competency you will be able to:
- Order the steps of common instructional design models.
- Identify cases of backward design integrated with design models and determine whether backward design is appropriately employed.
- Evaluate the use of universal design for learning (UDL) in instructional materials.
