A Designer's Log: Case Studies in Instructional Design by Michael Power
University of Washington Press | February 15, 2010 | English | ISBN: 1897425619 | 266 pages | PDF | 4 MB
Books and articles on instructional design in online learning abound but rarely do we get such a comprehensive picture of what instructional designers do, how they do it, and the problems they solve as their university changes. Michael Power documents the emergence of an adapted instructional design model for transforming courses from single-mode to dual-mode instruction, making this designer's log a unique contribution to the field of distance education.

I don't know if people will ever be able to talk to animals the way Doctor Doolittle could, or whether animals will be able to talk back. Maybe science will have something to say about that. But I do know people can learn to "talk" to animals, and to hear what animals have to say, better than they do now.
