"Instructional design is a process for systematically designing effective
instructional materials and learning opportunities. Good instructional
design involves needs assessment, development, evaluation,
implementation, and maintenance
of the learning system... These principles can
help librarians design effective and high-impact teaching environments
from semester long courses to one-shot library instruction classes to
the effective use of signage and website design."
