Implementation of an Instructional Design Model, Measuring Learning


Instructional design (ID) is a critical skill for nursing professional development practitioners (NPDs). Instructional design seeks to solve gaps in knowledge or skill by identifying both the educational issue and the outcomes by designing how to achieve the outcomes. There are complex and advanced instructional design needs for problem solving that requires an educational foundation in instructional design and experience. The purpose of the quality-improvement project was to assess the changes in NPD practitioners’/nurse educators’ adaptation to industry standards for ID pre- and post-implementation of a standardized instructional design model. The Nurse Educator Self-Assessment in Measuring Learning survey was developed to capture NPDs’ experience of use of ID industry standards for instructional designing before and after the implementation of a standardized instructional design model. This information would be helpful to improve future implementation and provide considerations for best use of resources, which includes NPD practitioners with ID experience, who could be supportive resources for novice instructional designers. In addition, this information could help with the planning of education and training to ID standards and the introduction to a new ID model and its implementation.
