Instructional Design


This portfolio site is for an instructional design certification program at the University of Maryland. The learning theories represented here categorize learning and thinking, explain how the mind functions, describe how we organize what we learn, and how knowledge is constructed and recalled. These theories provide a common language for curriculum developers and have been used as the basis for the strategies and design of curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The linking of learning theory and instructional technology provides a deeper connection to becoming an instructional designer or learning to design instruction.
