Learning How People Learn: Instructional Design and Its Impact on How We Educate

Teaching is more than just regurgitating information onto students. There are various methods and approaches at a teacher's disposal to make sure that students are able to acquire the knowledge and skills they need for a particular subject.

More than that, teachers aim to instill a love for learning in students, encouraging them to continue learning even after they had finished formal education. But it would be difficult in our educational landscape today without a system.

And that's where instructional design could help instructors and educators develop learning experiences which could stimulate a student's passion for learning.

Although instructional design has been a part of higher education for over 75 years, it is still an emerging field that is influencing and is influenced by the driving forces of the institutional landscape.
A 2016 report on the role, workflow, and experience of instructional designers indicates that the number of instructional designers working in US colleges and universities continues to grow, a phenomenon that is related to the continued expansion of online education programs and course offerings in instructional design.

Educause presents here a few points about instructional design as a field in higher education as well as the impact of learning engineering on the field which is a more quantitative and evidence-based method of designing learning experiences and material.
