AllAcademicCode:  1396560
    Time: 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM Tuesday, Oct. 23
Description:  This workshop will offer hands-on experience in applying the theory of design layers and functional design to specific instructional design problems. The theory of instructional design layers provides a new view of design architecture that leads to a more direct and common-sense application of instructional theory. The theory of design layers leads to the idea of functional design, an approach currently used in other design fields but not in instructional design. Hands-on experience will demonstrate to participants the value of these ideas in solving everyday instructional design problems.

AllAcademicCode:  1397785
    Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Saturday, Oct. 27
Description:  Identifying yourself as a quantitative researcher or a qualitative researcher may limit your ability to explore a broader range of research questions. Where qualitative researchers report on how and why of the research questions, the quantitative researchers inform about how many, who, where, and when. Either can give only a part of the complete picture. Then, why not consider using mixed method research design? Learn how to decide if mixed methods approach is the correct paradigm to apply, to develop mixed methods research questions, explore the role of sampling, to compare and contrast the mixed methods approach with quantitative and qualitative research approach.
