Trends And Issues In Instructional Design And Technology

The major concern of the professionals in this field of educational technology and research is the issue that requires that new directions should be taken. This are some of the steps that may help facilitate the implementation of an innovation; use of learning types that have all along being ignored an example is generic skills and understanding, use of the new technologies that offer the opportunity of capabilities this are technologies such as the use of computer based systems, the use of middle level strategies, the selection of meditational systems, motivating the learners which plays a major role in innovation and release of new capabilities, a complete restructuring of the education system, designing management systems for instructions and also structuring course, synthesizing it and also coming up with great ideas (Robert, 2007).
Non- instructional solutions are those solutions to performance problems that do not require training. Human performance technology in the book is concerned in improving the general performance of people, in the sense of the motivation that is required by individuals. Thus it requires that one should look into the motivation of workers in terms of their motivation to work, self motivation, and motivation to learn.

Motivation is an essential thing or it plays a very important role in the performance of any individual it enables individuals develop interest in that area. Thus this definition is well put as nothing works well in human beings without the presence of motivation in them..

An EPSS (electronic performance support system) is a system that helps in improving worker’s productivity that is computer based and helps by providing learning experiences and advices. An example is performance centered design (PCD) this is incorporated through competition awards. EPSS supports through; Providing all the information that an employee needs in order to perform that particular task, it provides a decision supporting system that helps the employees in noting the most appropriate action for a certain task and reducing the complication of tasks by reducing the number of steps to be followed. Thus it can help organizations to reduce the cost of training its staff, as well as increasing the performance and productivity of this individuals (Robert, 2007).
