New EdTech Podcast: Using Instructional Theory in Instructional Design

A few months ago I recorded a podcast with my good friend John Jeon. We discussed using Instructional Theory in Instructional Design and I found our discussion to give some interesting ideas for using theory to improve learning experiences. Here is the link to the podcast.

Here is a description of the podcast from The EdTech Dojo:
There is a body of knowledge called instructional theory that provides clear prescriptions on how to help students learn. However, these theories can often be difficult to apply in our daily work. In this podcast, Joel speaks with John Jeon, Senior Instructional Designer and Project Manager for Continuing Education Outreach and E-Learning at the University of Wisconsin. Joel and John describe what instructional theory is and provide tips for applying its principles to real-world situations and instructional design settings.

One of the things we face in our field and with our students is linking theory and practice. I appreciated your suggestions on how to do this. Nice to hear both of your voices too. - Anne M. :)
