Mission statement

SIG Instructional design brings together researchers who study the design and development of learning environments. Learning environments are conceived as contexts that aim at fostering learning. The contexts range from regular classrooms to highly sophisticated virtual reality environments. The key question discussed in the SIG pertains to the relationship between different features and outlooks of such environments on the one hand and learning processes and learning results on the other. Of particular importance is the mediating role of student variables.
