  • About the Authors

The design of information literacy instruction and the building of it are two distinct skillsets and processes; yet all too often everything gets mashed together, creating needless confusion and stress. In this book Turnbow, an instructional designer, and Roth, an instructional technologist, suggest a better way to organize the work. They shed light on the people, processes, and resources required to create a sustainable portfolio of online instruction. With the goal of fostering conversations in your library about the most streamlined and effective ways to get the work done, they provide guidance on such topics as

  • design and development processes, complete with “I.D. in Action” examples and sample design documents;
  • thumbnail descriptions of ADDIE, SAM, and design thinking methods;
  • creating learning objects;
  • types of software tools and how to evaluate them;
  • crafting the best documentation of your work for efficient maintenance and reuse;
  • adapting assessment to your learning outcomes and purpose;
  • when to design for performance support, an underutilized method in libraries; and
  • starting points for those interested in developing instructional design and development skills.

Demystifying the instructional design and development process used to create online learning objects, this book will help you understand how instructional design principles and approaches can benefit your learners.
