AECT Standard 2 (Content Pedagogy): Candidates develop as
reflective practitioners able to demonstrate effective
implementation of educational technologies and processes
based on contemporary content and pedagogy.
Artifact 1: Problem Based Learning with Similar
Context Conditions- This assignment was created in the
spring of 2018 in EDET 709 Application of Learning
Principles, taught by Dr. Erin Besser. It was a single
assignment within a larger course
Scope- This assignment was designed as an application
of learning models that were being studied during this
course, specifically, problem based learning.
Role- For this assignment I was the sole designer and
creator as well as the subject matter expert.
Instructional Design- This document was created
through the application of knowledge in problem based
design. It employed multiple components of the MRK model
such as defineing the instructional
problems, task analysis, and instructional objectives.
Related Performance Indicator(s)
Creating- The candidate created a lesson plan which
implements best practices in instructional design
Using- The candidate used the created lesson along
with geometry software to develop student learning.
Assessing/Evaluating- The candidate used knowledge
of student entry characteristics to design
instruction. The candidate also utilized appropriate
rubrics to assess student learning and refine
Managing- The candidate successfully managed the
technology resources required for the lesson along
with student actions.
Ethics- Candidate created a lesson absent of any
cultural or gender bias. All sources were
Reflection- This assignment gave me an opportunity to
apply instructional design in my classroom and led to
one of my most successful lessons of the year. It
reinforced how the study of instructional design could
lead to applied learning in authentic contexts. I feel
that the hands on component and detailed analysis of the
problem were its greatest strength. One weakness that I
feel is that I should have added more detail on how the
geogebra software was to be used to model these
Artifact 2: Instructional Design Unit on the Rock Cycle
Context Conditions-These artifacts were constructed in
the Fall of 2018 as part of the course requirements of
EDET 722- Instructional Design and Assessment by Dr.
Scope- This assignment represents the end result of a
running assignment which spanned the entire semester.
Role- I was the sole designer, creator and subject
matter expert on this assignment.
Instructional Design-This product was created using
the ADDIE model. Significant time was spent on the
Analysis and Design components for this assignment as
reflected in the complexity of the front end analysis

Creating-The Candidate created a rapid elearning
tool was created along with appropriate documentation
and assessment items.
Using- The candidate used the tool effectively in an
Assessing/Evaluating-The candidate recorded and
utilized appropriate data gathering both before and
after instruction to guide and refine feedback.
Managing-The candidate created and hosted digital
material in an accessible format. The candidate was
able to administer instruction effectively
Ethics- The candidate took students backgrounds and
prior learning into account during development and
took special needs into consideration.
Reflection- This assignment provided me with an
opportunity to develop many of my skills related to
instructional design. It required me to utilize the
ADDIE model heavily and also stretched my technical
skills considerably. I would often refer back to the
documentation on this assignment as an example for
future assignments. One thing that I feel could be done
better is the graphic design of the instruction. One of
my weaknesses in the creation of technology tools is the
