ETAP 623 Fall 2018 - Systematic Design of Instruction

ID process

The ETAP 623 class will use this wiki as a primary tool to create mini-courses, deploying your knowledge and skills learned about the ID processes. (Note: If you prefer to use Google Sites to create your online mini-course, please discuss with the instructor. We are testing this as a new online environment for building mini-courses, and have a test site set-up already.)

The goals of this wiki site is to provide an open space for co-developing public knowledge--collective educational know-how--in the service of continuous teacher learning, improvement, and innovation. When you contribute to this open space, please realize that any page you create here will be instantly accessible to other authors and visitors (if they search/open your page). If you have any concern about this openness or want to prevent your work from being publicly visited, please contact Dr. Jianwei Zhang at jzhang1(at) to negotiate a special setting or remove your pages from this site after your class is completed.

The ID Processes

  • The design project expects you to exercise the processes of instructional design as we study/read about each component/step of it in this course. The processes need to be documented in your project portfolio page.

Project Agenda

End Product

As your end product, you will produce a mini-course for teacher learning, such as Integrating_Metacognitive_Development_in_Mathematics_Instruction, with teachers as your target learner/audience;

Evaluation Criteria

  • This design process (portfolio) and end product (mini-course) will be evaluated based on the following Evaluation_criteria

General Suggestions and Feedback from the Instructor

  • IMPORTANT! Name your wikipages and attached files using unique titles/filenames: This Wiki system will overwrite pages/files with the same name. So IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE NAME OUR WIKIPAGES USING UNIQUE TITLES. For example, instead of "unit 1" or "lesson 1" you should use "Unit 1: Specific Title..." Similarly, for your curriculum maps and other attached files, please also use unique filenames such as "ICM_your name.doc"
  • If you are trying to find useful videos (e.g., classroom episodes, educational videos) that can be embedded in your mini-course, you may find this site helpful:

Video Tutorials about Wiki Editing

A few tutorials created by a former instructor: (adding and uploading images) (creating new linked pages) (copying code from someone else’s page, creating headings and table of contents)

Important Tip!

  • It is always a good idea to first draft your text in a word processing package and then save it outside of the wiki. Back-ups are always handy to have!
