RRP $262.99

This book provides the most current and complete version of statements defining a competent instructional designer, for those who are or aspire to practice in virtually any context, anywhere in the world. The research conducted to update and validate these standards included obtaining feedback from over 1000 senior to novice practitioners and scholars working in the North, South, and Central Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and African nations.

This book is intended for those who hire, train, and prepare instructional designers and those who work (or plan to work) as instructional designers. It provides an updated description of the profession. It lays out the most critical competencies (e.g., knowledge, skills, and attitudes) of the successful instructional designer, regardless of the context in which they work (e.g., K-12, higher education, business and industry, government and military, private consultancy, informal or formal), the location in which they practice (e.g., the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia), and the type of delivery for which they design (e.g., face-to-face, paper-based, digital, blended).

There have always been questions about what instructional designers do...such questions led to the creation of ibstpi more than 30 years ago. Yet, this questioning is especially true today with the growing call for developers of e-learning and other technology-supported instruction. The term 'instructional designer' seems to have become a generic phrase that now lends itself to a broad range of meanings, and yet, it is a definitive profession with a specific scope and focus. The more widely the label 'instructional designer' is used, the more room there is for misunderstanding about what is called for in skills, behaviours, competencies, and outputs. What is called for in the midst of this learning boom is clarity, direction and uniform expectations. With a common understanding, we can help avert poor design, especially in e-learning and technology-supported instruction, which often fails learners or has high attrition rates.

Grounded on rigorous research, consulting hundreds of practitioners around the world, this book articulates and explains what is required to be a competent instructional designer. It includes the set of standards that clarifies the profession and provides a set of competencies for creating hiring schemes, professional development guidelines, performance assessments, work plans, and curriculum to prepare instructional designers.The instructional designer profession continues to grow in wake of emerging technologies, new pedagogies, and virtual learning environments.

However, many educators, instructors, and even training specialists often lack the competencies to design, develop, implement, and evaluate these newer types of instructional solutions. This book articulates and explains the competencies that are required to be a competent instructional designer.

With AutoCAD 2011, Autodesk enhanced the user interface and improved many drawing functions including annotative dimensions and text. Neither simplistic nor exhaustive, this revised edition of Digital Drawing for Designers teaches the latest version of AutoCAD by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world. Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), the book progresses through architectural graphic standards allowing students to create drawings and effectively communicate their design ideas. Advanced features - such as annotative dimensions, annotative blocks, express tools, and linking drawings (XREFs) - are also covered. Instructions are illustrated using language and concepts from manual drafting, creating a smooth transition to the digital environment for all designers. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons and visual illustrations. Experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the AutoCAD guide written for interior designers and architects. Features: - Updated for AutoCAD 2011: compatible with AutoCAD versions 14 through 2011 - Illustrations depicting tools, functions, the AutoCAD ribbon interface, and keyboard commands - Practice exercises to reinforce each chapter's topics - Clear explanation of drawing and printing with line weight - Quick reference aids: command reference guide, index, and large-type page headers - Companion website features downloads for each chapter, including exercises, plot styles, title blocks, drawing templates, and professional AutoCAD drawings Instructor's Resources: - Instructor's Guide includes course syllabi and chapter outlines, tips for teachers, and problems and assignments to suit the skill levels of both interior design students and new interior designers
