Educational Media and Technology Yearbook
2002 Volume 27
Edited by Mary Ann Fitzgerald, Michael Orey, and Robert Maribe Branch
“In the year 2001, we noted several trends in the field, some new, and others continuing from recent years. The international surge toward online education or “e-learning” continues to gain momentum. Instructional technology projects and initiatives continue to emphasize the themes of collaboration and integration. The interdisciplinary nature of this field seems to be broadening, and the borders between instructional technology, information science, and educational media, and information technology are becoming increasingly blurred. Among K-12 and higher education leaders, tension between the standards reform movement and the constructivist philosophy remains, and the debate over this issue has many implications for our field. In broader contexts, experiential education seems to be gaining importance, and designers are applying emerging technologies to create learning environments that stimulate authentic situations. Finally, over the last few years we have witnessed a changing of the guard as many prominent leaders in the field of instructional technology have retired. These developments and trends are represented in the Yearbook in the form of research studies, descriptive reports, and conceptual pieces.”—From the Preface
Exploring current issues each year for more than a last quarter of a century, this annual volume helps media and technology professionals keep abreast of a changing and expanding field. With this 27th volume, readers will learn of the latest trends and issues, exciting projects unfolding at several research laboratories, issues of particular relevance to K-12 education, and the careers of some instructional technology leaders. And, as always, this volume provides directories of instructional technology-related organizations and institutes of higher learning offering degrees in related fields as well as an annotated list of selected current publication related to the field.

Survey of Instructional Development Models, Fourth Edition*
By Kent L. Gustafson and Robert Maribe Branch
With a Foreword by Robert Reiser
Previous editions of this classic book by Gustafson and Branch have been used as required reading in instructional design classes for twenty years. This new edition, which will be published in time for fall 2002 course adoption, reflects the ways in which the instructional design (ID) field has changed in the past few years. As Robert Reiser discusses in his foreword, new ID models have been proposed, new ID procedures have been used, and the role and scope of professionals in the ID field have been greatly expanded. This new edition not only provides a brief overview of these recent trends, it also provides a brief history of ID models, an updated definition of the field, the authors’ taxonomy of ID models, and the addition of several models developed in countries other than the U.S.
