However, this faculty member appeared to be just a bit less knowledgeable about instructional design and distance education than the previous one. Before our first meeting, I had asked the professor, as usual, to send me a copy of her current syllabus and I also invited her to go to my website to view both presentations on the congruency principle and the design model we’d be using. To save time, I obtained copies of the other course syllabi in her program from the Dean’s office. Session 1: This professor had never before seen the other syllabi comprising the program in which she taught.
Conclusion At the end of this first case, I saw that the time this professor had been able to dedicate to the design of his course was very limited, usually no more than three hours of working together and three hours of work on his own per week. However, the classical ISD design model which was the basis for my prototype and which guided the design process over this six-week period required at least twice the time he had available. We had never completed any one step, whether it was the analysis of his course, the overall design of it or, for that matter, any of the others usual steps.
He often says to me that the model is very structured, doubtlessly meaning it’s too structured). I thus find myself in a trade-off situation: I simply can’t stand firm on principle without affecting the professor’s motivation to continue, so I must deviate from applying the classical ISD model. This puts me in an intolerable position because, on the one hand, if I agree to betray the most fundamental principles of instructional design, doing so will likely result in a relatively inferior course.
