Pedagogy-Focused Instructional Design vs. Factory-Line Instructional Design

It seems like there are two types of instructional design happening in institutions of higher learning: Pedagogy-Driven Instructional Design and what I have personally come to term as Factory-Line Instructional Design.

  • Which method does your institution use? 
  • Where do you see advantages and disadvantages? 
  • Which approach is better for learners?
  • What factors might drive an institution to adopt one approach over the other? 
  • How do these approaches compare to what's happening in K12 school systems?
  • What impact might that have on higher education's ability to meet its incoming undergraduate students where they are?
