Why Instructional Design?

In everything we do we use some type of design. As educators we are designing course work everytime we prepare a lesson. We determine the needs of the students, set the goals and objectives and design the lesson based on the type of audience we are targeting. We determine what is the best delivery of the content we are trying to teach/deliver to our students. We then evaluate what we have done and determine if the outcome was a success. Once we have gone through the steps, we start over and make our design better to reach our next audience. We evaluate the previous design and make necessary changes. It is all about planning and instruction. It is what we do in our work and our daily lives.
