This paper presents a grounded theory of instructional design as an assimilation-based process in response to calls for instructional reform as institutional innovation. Two hypotheses are presented and a matrix of instructional reform and innovation is illustrated. This matrix indicates that the central tensions driving the integration of technology into the postsecondary environment are between institutional standardization v customization and between instructional reform through the design of instructional experience at the classroom level v the design of instructional materials at the discipline level.
