Instructional Design [also called Instructional Systems Design (ISD)] is the practice of creating "instructional experiences which make the acquisition of knowledge and skill more efficient, effective, and appealing."
The process consists broadly of determining the current state and needs of the learner, defining the end goal of instruction, and creating some "intervention" to assist in the transition. Ideally, the process is informed by pedagogically (the process of teaching) and andragogically (adult learning) tested theories of learning and may take place in student-only, teacher-led, or community-based settings.
