This is the first part of a two part series focusing on Problem-Based Learning & Game Design.  

Problem-Based Learning & Game Design

Instructional design is both a process (macro) and a strategy (micro).  Micro instructional design models should provide a formula for designing user experience, engagement and interaction that supports learning.  Join this session to explore David Merrill’s Pebble in the Pond (PiP) instructional design model for problem-based learning and consider how it can also be applied to game-based learning design.



  • Define macro and micro instructional design
  • Explore a micro instructional design model
  • Consider how game-based learning can come from problem-based learning
