Curriculum and Instructional Design (CID) must consider many aspects involved in education. Before deciding upon a plan for education, designers examine the influences on the learner at the point of contact. These include the teacher, the content, and the learner in the larger world context.
Teachers function as both the designer and implementer of education. A discussion on the importance of using critical reflection during the design process. The ADDIE model.
There are many ways to approach and develop a curriculum or plan for learning at different levels of complexity. Though some practitioners approach the design of instruction from a specific starting point like content to be taught, method of delivery, learning context, etc; this will not be specified. Instead, key concepts will be presented and you will be able to choose your own way of approaching how you plan and design curricular materials at all levels. We will examine the Critical Learning Path (CLP) and Constructive Alignment for Learning (CAL).
