Abstract

Merrill's first principles of instruction (Merrill, 2002) were distilled from a variety of meta-analyses and a life-time synthesis of studies looking for effective instructional methods. As a design heuristic it was intended to be used in conjunction with any learning theory to create good instruction. This study compares Merrill's first principles of instruction to the current standards of quality used to measure outstanding courses. The presentation will review the findings of our comparison study and discuss the relative merits of different measures of quality currently available for college-level courses.
