Recent activity in instructional design and development has seen a number of different approaches to instruction including problem-based learning, communities of learners, and distributed learning via the Internet. Too often these approaches are seen as alternative approaches. For the past decade Dr. Merrill has identified first principles of instruction which are believed to underlie effective, efficient and engaging instruction no matter what form it takes. In this presentation Dr. Merrill will discuss first principles of instruction and how they lead to an integration of the three approaches identified. This presentation will describe Dr. Merrill's current work at Brigham Young University Hawaii to help the faculty adapt their courses to be problem-centered, peer-interactive, and technology-enhanced so that they can be taught both on campus and at a distance. Just as technology is converging to give us many different technologies in a single device if the future of instructional design is to result in e3 instruction then these approaches must also converge to form an integrated approach to instructional design. This presentation will describe such a possible integration.
