AbstractThis study develops a model of instructional design that incorporates the affective domain as an integral component. The model combines Keller's ARCS model of motivation for learning with the five phased military instructional design model. The proposed model provides a framework for organizing instructional principles, strategies and techniques concerning the affective domain and furnishes a theoretical base to aid in formulating research hypotheses and collecting empirical data. Attention to the affective domain is particularly important for technology based instruction that removes teacher/ student interaction from the lesson delivery. This model should be helpful because it provides for the systematic consideration of the affective domain in every aspect of the instructional design process. The study concludes with recommendations for additional research needed to operationalize the model for use by instructional designers.
