Interview with Charles M. Reigeluth: Applying Instructional Design to Educational Reform


Professor Reigeluth emphasizes that the work of educational technology researchers should focus on advancing instructional design theories rather than investigating some trendy aspects of utilizing educational media in schools. He makes the point that such an orientation will provide a comprehensive framework for efforts toward improving education dramatically in the knowledge-driven societies of the twenty-first century. This is to say that nobody can transform schools without providing personally meaningful experiences for all learners in an integrated system of education.
