Over the past two decades there have been dramatic changes in the field of instructional design and technology. These changes have come about largely as a result of two sets of influences. The first involves new views regarding the teaching and learning process, including the performance improvement movement, constructivist views of teaching and learning, and development of the learning sciences. The second set of influences involves major changes in how technology is being used to share information and present instruction. These changes include the increasing use of online learning technologies, performance support and knowledge management systems, social networking and game-based learning. This presentation will focus on how each of these developments plus several others have changed the nature of the instructional design and technology field.
