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 portfolio, such as these two:

Project Agenda

End Product

As your end product, you will produce

  • A mini-course for teacher learning, such as Data analysis for differentiated instruction, with teachers as your target learner/audience; OR
  • An instructional case report such as: Problem Based Curriculum Development - A Case Study, providing/implementing a set of lessons for students to learn about a core topic. Other teachers will also be able to benefit from analyzing your lessons, as an instructional case, to understand the teaching approach, tool, or assessment that have applied.

Evaluation Criteria

General Suggestions and Feedback from the Instructor

  • Please see General Suggestions and Feedback
  • 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:


  • SOMETIMES WHEN SAVING YOUR PAGE THE SYSTEM WILL ASK YOU TO SOLVE A SIMPLE MATH, TO PREVENT POSSIBLE spam changes. You have to solve the math problem before your text can be saved.
  • It is alway a good idea to first draft your text in a word processor and save it on your disk.

  • I really enjoy reading the mini-courses created by our class, and would highly recommend that each of us choose a few to read, learn and enjoy. Please feel free to recommend our KNILT site to your colleagues if you think the mini-courses and resources will be helpful for them. Thanks for your contribution! Jianwei, May 16, 2012.
