In Part II, we explored adult learning principles, learner differences, and engaging learners to promote self-directed learning. Now, in Part III, we will examine systematic instructional design, including the student- or learner-centered approaches that promote lifelong learning. Although many trainers and instructors serve as both the content specialist and instructional designer, some institutions use a team approach with various people providing expertise. This chapter provides an overview of learner-centered instruction and instructional design models to help you or a team of developers conceptualize instructional planning. What are the components of instructional design? What is meant by teacher-centered versus learner-centered paradigms of instruction? How can we design instruction that will promote active learning and the use of critical and creative thinking skills?
