Artifact 5: The One About Instructional Design and the Human Touch
Now, let us move on to the "humanistic" aspect of instructional design. Artifact 5 taken from the course HMHP 5903 Human Performance Technology shares some light on how the element of instructional design affects human performance. Human Performance Technology (HPT) comprises the step-by-step processes to identify the performance problem such as organisational analysis, environment analysis, gap analysis. It is reflective of the systematic processes of instructional design as in analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation. Moreover, the human performance technology model also depicts how a performance problem can be thoughtfully analysed by considering various factors in analyses in order to develop a holistic, effective and efficient solution to resolve a problem. As seen in Artifact 5, I analysed the performance problem in the context of my work as a publishing executive. In Artifact 5, I highlighted the development of CD-ROM materials that overlaps with the course development process which is the performance problem. Kindly click here to view Artifact 5(a). I also came up with the performance intervention to deal with the issues highlighted in Artifact 5(a). Kindly click here to view Artifact 5(b) on performance intervention.
