Abstract

The purpose of this study is to discuss the instructional theory’s past, current, and future from a critical lens by pointing out the Snelbecker (1983)’s article. Firstly, instructional theory’s historical evolution is discussed through a frame of three ages of the theory, which are mainly based on learning theories and paradigm of that time: focus on behavior, focus on cognition, and focus on interaction and collaboration. In the second section of this study, current theories and methods are reviewed with an attempt of reflecting big picture of the field. Furthermore, based on the issues discussed in the paper predictions will be made about the future of instructional theory.
