Systematic Redesign of a University Course: An Interesting Example

Redesign of an Introductory Course in a Master’s Program in Instructional Design and Performance Technology, Joel Gardner and Barbara Carder, Franklin University,

Abstract: This article examines a systematic approach to redesigning an introductory course in a graduate program in Instructional Design and Performance Technology (IDPT) to produce a more efficient and effective learning environment and to foster persistence in the course and program.

The course redesign employed the systematic process of instructional design using the basic phases of the ADDIE process (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation). This paper highlights the steps taken to redesign the introductory course, as well as the collaborative approach to developing its instructional materials, course content, and student performance outcomes.

The online course was developed in BlueQuill, Franklin University’s proprietary learning management system (LMS), and includes several multimedia learning objects developed using Camtasia Studio and Articulate Studio.

Results of this redesign are presented.

Remark Jan Nedermeijer. The article describes very nice how to redesign a existing course. Interesting points are the serious use of evaluation, the visualisation of the program (fig. 4) and the design group work (teachers and students).

The ADDIE-process is rather general and gives a teacher designer not much support. An interesting question for me is ‘can you elaborate on the design aspects of instructional design’ into more specific activities?’.
See, for example, in the topic Course development in the website.
