Technology continues to advance in learning and development and instructional designers have the opportunity to leverage new technology to enhance learning events. "Automation and other technologies continue to improve the quality of work people do" (Zane, p. 33). The foundational principles of instructional design largely remain the same, but "instructional designers and other learning and development specialists must change the way they work when developing new instruction or when revising existing instruction" (Zane, p 34).
The button below links to an academic article "Secret of Instructional Design Revisited" by Dr. Zane Berge. This article explores how instructional designers and other learning and development professionals can begin to think about how current technology can be leveraged to create instructional systems that weave in "authentic, real-world performance" (Zane, p. 34) while implementing four instructional design elements consistently. These elements are objectives, methods, content, and evaluation.
