Title: Instructional design theory for entirely Web-based courses in higher education: A case study on ESL pragmatic teaching
Abstract: This study developed an instructional design theory to provide theoretically sound, practical guidelines that incorporate learner-centered and collaborative approaches into entirely Web-based ESL pragmatic courses. Learners' pragmatic competencies refer to language abilities to produce culturally acceptable speeches for social contexts.
The formative research methodology was used to create and refine the design theory. The initial theory was developed inductively based on various resources: interview data from ESL faculty and instructors, analysis of university ESL and EFL pragmatic lessons, the researcher's teaching experience, and a broad review of theory and research on related fields. For the theory refinement, the prototype model was formatively reviewed by experts invited from related fields.
The refined design theory identifies instructional values and instructional conditions and suggests instructional methods which assist instructors (1) to create supportive environments to prepare learners for Web-based instruction, (2) to foster ESL pragmatic awareness and development through collaboration and feedback, and (3) to nurture motivational and self-regulated learning.
