Managing and Supporting Instructional Design and Development is a practical guide to managing multiple levels of instructional design activities, based upon management concept and application as well as instructional design process and application. The book takes an integrated approach within each level of an instructional design project: lesson, block, course, and courses leading to a certificate or degree. Topics of special focus ranging from scope and estimation to personnel and communication are addressed initially as discrete and segregated topics and later elaborated in more detail within the context of the different project or program levels.
This volume includes a systemic perspective, elaborated examples, meaningful activities, engaging exercises, multiple contexts, and best practices. In addition, each chapter that introduces the students to instructional project management at a particular project or program level has an integrated, scenario based project activity for students and faculty to develop. The book concludes with an examination of challenging instructional project management tasks, situations, and environments. A companion website contains examples, resources, and activities will be maintained to complement the contents and maintain currency with new and relevant technologies.
