Study Title: Comparison and Contrast of Graduate Instructional Design & Technology (IDT) Course Syllabi across Countries

The dissertation focuses on comparing and contrasting graduate-level IDT course syllabi in terms of their nature, structure and content etc. across countries. The study should give faculty members an idea of what components and subcomponents are included in syllabi created by other instructors worldwide and how they differ from each other. The results will be reported in the part of the research findings of the dissertation. I am also planning to publish the results in journals to provide a reference for future syllabus research.

The first thing that I need to do is to collect the graduate IDT course syllabi worldwide. I hope to receive one or more of the graduate IDT course syllabi that faculty members are using now, including but not limited to the following courses:

  • Design for Learning or Principles of Instructional Design
  • Foundations of Instructional Design and Technology
  • Fundamentals of Technology Tools
  • Learning Theories for ID or Theoretical Foundations
  • Trends in Instructional Design and Technology
  • Applied Theories of Learning
  • Other IDT-related courses

Because one aspect that I am exploring is the difference in syllabi content before and after Covid-19, I also hope that the research participant sends me the syllabus of the same course before the pandemic. It does not matter to me whether the language is in English or not. In return for the kindness in providing the researcher with the documents, I would not only like to share with you the research findings, but I would also like to give you credit for the help and support in the section of acknowledgements of my dissertation.

What is provided by the research participants will be kept strictly confidential and will be used only for research purposes.
