Abstract

Based on Chickering and Gamson’s (1987) Seven Principles for Good Practice, the purpose of this research project was to attempt to revitalize the principles by amalgamating them with Merrill’s (2006) Different Levels of Instructional Strategy. The primary aim was to develop an instrument for DLISt7 and obtain data that could
facilitate its validation and standardization using a pretest-posttest Internet quasiexperimental
research design. The proposed measure could then be put forward for use either as a rubric for facilitating the extrinsic implementation of DLISt7, or as a set of
unobtrusive diagnostic indicators for assessing the quality of learning intrinsically experienced by students in blended and online courses. The study was conducted across
five faculties at a regional Australian multi-campus university. The intent was to contribute to new knowledge by utilizing the data collected to generate awareness about
the likelihood of thrusting into practice varying levels of instructional strategies for communicating expectations and relaying information in view of improving the
instructional design of future online courses. The idea was to produce a tool that could create more opportunities for more of the principles to be put to good use as an
effectiveness multiplier. The critical insight that can be extended to educational administrators, teaching staff and instructional designers is the importance of making
good use of whatever was made available, while remaining autonomously eclectic when deciding the discretionary balance between utilizing asynchronous or synchronous
communication technology and online resources for blended and online courses.
