Product Description


Winner of the 2012 Brown Outstanding Book Award

"This volume offers a comprehensive review and summary of the various theories that have informed instructional design over the years….The book is well written and organized, and it may well become a classic reference work….The up-to-date treatments of foundation theories and the discussion of their interrelationships and impact on instructional design are not to be found in any other single volume, which makes this an important resource for instructional design researchers and practitioners."—Educational Technology

3.0 out of 5 stars Boring as most textbooks are 15 Feb 2013
By Patricia A. Martens - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's like nearly every textbook I've had to purchase - boring - puts me to sleep trying to read it - and costs WAY too much.
