Instructional Design Podcast Series

Instructional Technology PodcastThe term “instructional technology” is often mistaken as a reference to technology used in a teaching or training context. The definition of instructional technology described by Seels and Richey (1994) best describes OAT’s vision of the discipline:

“Instructional Technology is the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management and evaluation of processes and resources for learning.”

The Purpose

Instructional technology and design is a large part of the service the Office of Academic Technology provides. From drop-in consulting to developing a new strategy to a course design from the ground up, OAT designers can help faculty take their courses to the next level. This three-part podcasting series discusses instructional design as you learn more about our designers and what they know about instructional design.

This episode is part one of a three-part series featuring Randy Meredith, director of Academic Technology, as well as Instructional Designers Tara McCoy and Marlena Bravender. Part one talks about the origins of instructional design and how it has evolved to what it is today, and how it contributes to quality in course design.  Listen in iTunes U
