EDCI 572:Advanced Practices in Learning Design & Technology Lauren Parker Purdue University Final Reflections Essay Teaching

for ID Expertise Rowland states that the factors that influence design require social interaction. In my opinion, this means that an ID curriculum must include practice in real world situations. Learning the basics of ADDIE first would set the stage. I would have a novice shadow several projects. With each project I would give the IDer larger and larger pieces of the project to implement on their own. Id continue this process until you felt the IDer was really ready to take off the training wheels. Then, I would have the IDer complete a complete project from start to finish on their own. I would interview the client for their satisfaction at the completion of the project. The ID process is very complicated, so without enrolling in an instructional design course, I think the best way to learn will be through doing. Definition of ID Expertise- Revisited Previous Definition in 672 This part two actually presents a bit of a challenge. I transferred into Purdues program from the University of Marylands MA program for Instructional Systems Design, so I transferred credit for 513. I found a similar statement in an early paper I wrote. Instructional design is a system of creating training solutions for clients that utilizes the theories of motivation and adult learning. Solutions holistically address the needs of the client and meet the objectives of the learners. With this definition, ID expertise means being able to manage expectations while delivering a high quality solution. ID expertise requires thoughtful design, attention to development and schedules, and collaboration to utilize all the right resources at the right stage. My early definition kind of implies that every client issue is resolvable by training. ID expertise would recognize when the issue at hand cannot be solved with a training solution. Meeting objectives are definitely important, but we know as well that learners usually do not know or care about the objectives of the training. A more appropriate phrasing might be about providing an evaluation strategy for the developed solution. Expertise is difficult to define as it presents itself differently in each situation, but hopefully by the conclusion of this course I will have a much clearer picture of what an ID expert looks like. Final 672 Definitions

I would agree with my previous definition of ID expertise, but it could be written a bit more succinctly. I would rephrase it now like this. ID expertise requires attention to developmental needs and process driven design with problem-solving capabilities. An expert uses a combination of their past experience plus best practices and theory models to solve client issues. An expert is able to meet clients needs in a timely and professional way.
