Making novice instructional designers expert: Design and development of an electronic performance support system

Ugur-Erdogmus, Feray
Çağıltay, Kürşat
The purpose of this study is to design and develop an electronic performance support system (EPSS) to support novice instructional designers (NIDs) in the instructional system design process and to reveal the key elements of an EPSS for NIDs. Design and development research was carried out with 23 purposively-selected NID participants. It is a three-phase study. These phases are analysis, design and development, and evaluation. According to the results, the main components of EPSSs designed for NIDs are tutorials, examples, resources, tools, wizard, user interface, database and help. According to the perceptions of NIDs, using an EPSS during the instructional system design process has a positive effect on NIDs' performances. This study concludes with suggestions for practitioners and researchers.

The purpose of this study is to document design, development, and implementation of a question-answer based instructional design theory. Sigel and Saunders (1977) state that many studies report the benefits of asking questions and being asked questions as enhancing students' thinking and reflects students' thinking process. The impact of asking question or being asked questions are inevitably influential on learning. As students experience quality questions and questioning, their awareness of learning arise...
Best Practices Analysis of MOOCs
Eşfer Günay, Sezin; Çağıltay, Kürşat (null; 2016-11-16)
This paper reports the findings of a best practices analysis work conducted for an EU project which focuses on developing 100 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). With the aim to examine the best practices in EU, developed countries, Turkey and BRICS countries, following criteria have been considered: installed a platform for online trainings, online training in Information and Communication technology (ICT), experience in training of adults and training online conten...
Development of stem activities for high school physics classes
Kartal, Nurgün; Eryılmaz, Ali; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2021-1-06)
The purpose of this study is to develop STEM Engineering Design Process (STEM-EDP) activities for 10th and above grade levels by using an ADDIE instructional design model.When the literature wasreviewed in detail, it was very rareSTEM-EDPactivities which are developed based on systematic models. Therefore, the characteristics of STEM activities were formed bythe basis of ADDIE model. Also, for the implementation processes of the STEM activities, 7-step EDP modelwas used. As a r...
Experience reflection modelling as a generative research method in an educational case for sustainable product design
Turhan, Senem; Doğan, Çağla (2014-01-01)
A generative research method, namely Experience Reflection Modelling (ERM), has been developed aimed at helping students explore and reflect upon design considerations for sustainability in the idea generation phase of a design process. ERM has been integrated into a product design for sustainability project as part of the design education in the Department of Industrial Design at Middle East Technical University. This paper begins by providing an overview of the generative research approach, explaining its...
Performance-based parametric design explorations: A method for generating appropriate building components
Ercan, Burak; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira (2015-05-01)
Performance-based parametric design explorations depend on formulating custom-designed workflows that require reading, writing, interpreting and manipulating databases, as part of the design process. The possibilities of customization and parameterization offered by the user-friendly interfaces of advanced building-performance simulation software and digital design tools have now enabled architects to carry out performance-based design explorations without the help of simulation experts. This paper presents...
