So I was going to wait until Sunday night to post a turn to our discussion--but why not now? Here's what I'm thinking: great points have been made that the creative process of ISD (especially in the area of educational course design as opposed to technical/formal training) is hard to restrain with a "think-box" tool to walk through the design process. Still...I think automation has a benefit (as does technology). So here's the new question: are there not research-based (proven) practices on how best to teach subjects such as writing, dance, public speaking, math which might be caputred in a tool for novice ISD professionals? Rubric or Template? You choose and please discuss!
