Learning Objectives

  • understand the Development stage of ADDIE
  • collect and adopt teaching strategies, delivery methods, and assessment criteria
  • produce first draft of PDC course.

The Development stage initiates the production and testing of the methods and strategies adopted in the PDC course. Course designers must make use of the data collected from the Analysis (planning) and Design (structuring) stages to create a comprehensive instructional program that will deliver the resources necessary for learners to reach the goals of the course.  Development is action toward production and testing. It begins by creating a team, allocating tasks to each team member, setting goals for each task, and producing an instructional course.  At the end of the development phase, the team should have a comprehensive collection of course content and materials (readings, audio, visual, tactile), criteria-based assessment tools, delivery methodologies and formative and summative feedback protocols.The YOUTUBE video below by Gardner offers a brief overview of the development phase in the ADDIE instructional model.
