Instructional Design

/In•struc•tion•al de•sign/ (n)

"Instructional Design is the analysis of learning needs and systematic development of instruction. Instructional design specifies a method, that if followed will facilitate the transfer of knowledge, skills and attitude to the recipient of the instruction."

We as the ACPS Instructional Designers assist AUB faculty members in all aspects of teaching, research, course design, course development, course enrichment and technology in education. We offer training on the pedagogical aspects of course design as well as the integration of technology in education. As Instructional Designers at AUB we are responsible for certifying Blended and Online courses to make sure that they meet AUB's standards for excellence in teaching.

We follow a Systematic Design Approach

How Do We Ensure a Good Practice?

During the design of instruction, all teaching activities created should be consistent with the following seven principles. These are the Seven Principles of Good Practice as defined by Arthur W. Chickering and Zelda F. Gamson in the book entitled: "Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education".

  • Encourages contact between students and faculty
  • Develops reciprocity and cooperation among students
  • Encourages active learning
  • Gives prompt feedback
  • Emphasizes time on task
  • Communicates high expectations
  • Respects diverse talents and ways of learning
