The instructional strategies employed in a graduate course on Instructional Design have evolved from a project-based approach that focused on individuals to a team-based action-learning format that blends problem-based learning, web-enhanced instruction, small group activities and practice with implementation of each phase in the instructional design process. This evolution appears to avoid the pitfalls of the goal-driven (but narrow) project focus while maintaining the strengths of the PBL approach in the development of self-regulatory learning behaviors and the ability to be a reflective practitioner. The action learning approach promotes the integration of thinking and doing, improves transfer and the integration of instructional design theory with instructional design practice.
