This is a practical guide for teachers and trainers who are responsible for designing and writing instructional material. Focusing on layout and the visual presentation of text, the author of this work uses "before and after" formats to illustrate the importance of clarity, structure and emphasis.
Updated and revised, the sixth edition equips educators with practical skills for successful instructional design. Two new chapters have been added to offer the most current information in the field. One addresses the unique design challenges and opportunities when working with different technologies. It also illustrates how to apply and adapt the design model when working with these technologies. The other presents a combination of information on the ID proposal and project management. A new section also discusses the alternatives to the traditional design process. In addition, educators will find more information about the role of the designer, which they’ll be able to apply in the classroom.
Designing Usable Texts covers the analysis of textual communication processes in the real world of publishing systems and work sites. The book presents topics on designing and understanding of written texts; authoring, editing, and the production process; and training authors of informative documents. The text also describes the policies and processes of editing; lessons in text design from an instructional design perspective; and graphics and design alternatives such as studying strategies and their implications for textbook design. The identification of information requirements such as understanding readers and their uses of texts, modeling users and their use of technical manuals, is also considered. Psychologists and people involved in communication design, document design, information mapping, and educational technology will find the book invaluable.
