Final Reading Assignment

Now that you are concluding this book, you should know . . . that you still know very little about the field of Learning and Instructional Design Technology. This is a “meta” field after all! One of the best pieces of advice I received as a student was to “read everything.” As you progress in your studies, you will need to focus your reading specifically on the body of literature influencing your own work. However, take time to also read broadly, because often we need to step outside of our narrow research and design agendas to spark our creativity. The following are some recommended readings for you (with link addresses provided for those reading this book in pdf form), although any person in the field will have a different list—so ask them what they have read that influenced them, and you will be led down a fruitful path.
