This is a brief introduction to Dr. Merrill’s thoughts about instructional design.
  1. Principle 1—Problem-centered: Learning is promoted when learners are engaged in solving real-world problems.
  2. Principle 2—Activation: Learning is promoted when relevant previous experience is activated.
  3. Principle 3—Demonstration (Show me): Learning is promoted when the instruction demonstrates what is to be learned rather than merely telling information about what is to be learned.
  4. Principle 4—Application (Let me): Learning is promoted when learners are required to use their new knowledge or skill to solve problems.
  5. Principle 5—Integration: Learning is promoted when learners are encouraged to integrate (transfer) the new knowledge or skill into their everyday life.
