Models and Strategies for Training Design is a practical guide and reference book for instructional design professionals and students. Defining instructional design broadly, this volume describes 16 different models and strategies that can be used to create diverse learning experiences. The models and strategies represent behavioral, cognitive, humanistic, social, and affective theoretical perspectives. Each chapter supplies the origins, principles, research support, best uses, implementation steps, and the sample application of a model or strategy. A job aid guides readers in selecting appropriate models and strategies, given project requirements. Through careful selection, designers can make their instruction more effective and more appealing. A final chapter addresses special design considerations for technology-based multimedia instruction.
