5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books written on the subject! 22 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on
A must have for all instructional designers and trainers. An extremely well written book and a very enjoyable read--- it puts the book "The Systematic Design of Instruction" to shame...which by the way is a "definite sleeper"! If you want current information about instructional design, with step by step directions, with clear and concise professional opinion, this book is definitely for you! I highly recommend this book to all design associates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and easy to follow 27 Mar 2004
By Roz R - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I teach Instructional Design, and most of my Grad students don't have a clue what it is. They do not realize that Instructional Design is a Process not a Product. Piskurich's book is a no-nonesense walk through all the steps in the process. Each step is explained in clear, unambiguous language, and is easy to follow. This book can make anyone into an Instructional Designer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good resource to add to your ID library 19 Aug 2001
By Linda Ross, PhD - Published on
While certainly not the "definitive" book on the art and science of instructional systems design, this text contains lots of tips and tools to help you as you design your instructional project. Warning: Because books are often published months or years after they were researched and written, and as with any text that contains hyperlinks, you will find some of the links are no longer active.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Practical Guide to Instructional Design 16 Jun 2001
By Stuart H. Weinstein - Published on
For instructional designers at all levels of experience and in all settings, this book gives insight and practical applications for the systematic design of instruction. It is also excellent for sharing with clients, colleagues, and professional who have limited or no familiartity with Instructional Systems Design (ISD). The layout and content simplifies the perceived complexity of ISD models and provides straightforward concepts and practices. A must for the professional developer's library!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to develop instructional material 16 Mar 2007
By Tina Lewis Rowe - Published on
This book has more than some instructors will need, but I think all of it has potential for being very useful. For example, I am using part of it to help me improve the layout of a book, another part to help me teach trainers how to write better instructional objectives, and the rest to refresh my learning in every area.

There is still the matter of teaching in an effective way, and this book was not developed for that purpose. But having a well organized block of instruction in which each part has a purpose, and having good printed material and plenty of participant interaction, will make teaching easier. This book provides all of that in abundance. I believe it should be a standard reference for committed trainers.

instructional design is really a set of rules—or procedures, you could say—for creating training that does what it is supposed to do. &quote;
Highlighted by 18 Kindle users
Instructional design, stripped to its basics, is simply a process for helping you to create effective training in an efficient manner. It is a system—perhaps more accurately a number of systems—that helps you ask the right questions, make the right decisions, and produce a product that is as useful and useable as your situation requires and allows. &quote;
Highlighted by 15 Kindle users
In fact, various studies have suggested that less than 20 percent of performance problems are due to a lack of the knowledge or skills necessary to do the job; that is, the things that training affects. On the other hand, over 60 percent of performance gaps are caused by lack of feedback to the employee or poorly designed work processes. &quote;
