Welcome to my Instructional Design portfolio! According to the InstructionalDesign.org, instructional design is "the process by which instruction is improved through the analysis of learning needs and systematic development of learning materials." In instructional design, technology and multimedia are tools used to enhance instruction. The instructional design process takes into account the areas of performance, skills, and knowledge. The projects within this online portfolio reflect the application of cognitive theories and instructional strategies to instructional design. The instructional design artifacts in this portfolio illustrate my skills in the instructional design elements of systematic design of instruction, instructional psychology principles, and cognitive based models of learning.
