Doctoral Qualifying Exams: Part 10 – Instructional Technology Exam Question 3

For my Instructional Technology doctoral qualifying exams I was given one question each week for three weeks.  I had to answer the question in a week’s time, open source, open book.  My third question was intended to contribute to the first couple of chapters of my dissertation, which was eventually published as a book called Distance Education Innovations and New Learning Environments: Combining Traditional Teaching Methods and Emerging Technologies.

Question Set 3

In recent years there has been a call for theories to guide distance education.  Likewise, there is a need for instructional design theories to guide instructional strategies for distance education.  Introduce distance education and chart the trajectory of its history.  Then provide a conceptual explanation of instructional design theory.  Include a relevant literature review on these two topics and explain why there is a paucity of instructional design theories for distance education.  Create and justify a framework of criteria for evaluating instructional design theories.  Identify the four most promising instructional design theories identified in the literature review, explicating the strengths and limits of each theory.
