To develop practical Web-based instruction (WBI) design guidelines for faculty and instructional support staff, the author analyzed three different WBI design cases based on interviews with three experts. On the surface, the WBI design processes that each expert used look more alike than different, entailing similar major steps. The underlying principles and knowledge that guided each expert through the design processes, however, are unique in that each expert constructed her own set of heuristics to accommodate the myriad of contextual factors that arose in the work setting. After discussing the implications of findings, the author presents a six-phase set of WBI design guidelines.
"As old debates continue to rage and new ones emerge, it is heartening to remind ourselves of the breadth and depth of the conversation devoted to the role of education in civic engagement. For example, National Campus Compact, founded in 1985 and the largest national organization of college and university presidents and chancellors (1,100+) pledged to the public purpose(s) of higher education, announced in their recently issued 2014 Strategic Plan and Beyond that they are bringing added focus to several core priorities over the next five years.
This special issue of the Journal on Excellence in College Teaching advances our knowledge of civic engagement and service-learning by addressing the debates summarized above and/or the strategic priorities of Campus Compact."
