We discuss Merrill's First Principles of Instruction, a set of five fundamental strategies for helping your students learn effectively. These strategies are based on a review of dozens of instructional theories and several decades of research on instructional effectiveness.
During the discussion, we also briefly reminisce on our short-lived career (two hours, to be exact) as an improv comedy duo.
For more information on on Merrill's First Principles of Instruction, visit this post on Joel's blog.
