TEACHING OF COMPUTER SCIENCE IN MAURITIUS: A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF FOUR INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN MODELS

K. Goodoory

Mauritius Institute of Education (MAURITIUS)
Instructional design models provide teachers with a guide that shapes the learning process in the classroom. Although instructional design models can be used in any field of study, teachers are confronted with the question of which instructional design model to choose in the teaching of a specific topic. The aim of this study was to understand factors that affect the choice of instructional design models from four given instructional design models; namely, Merrill's First Principle of Instruction, ADDIE, ASSURE, and the Dick and Carey model.

Data for this study was obtained from reflective reports from 15 teachers of Computer Science working in both private and public institutions in Mauritius. The data was tabulated in a spreadsheet package and content analysis was performed on the data.

The results show that teachers have a preference for Merrill's First Principle of Instruction as they find it easy to use, it requires less preparation time, and more engagement from learners.
