    Design thinking is gaining ground in many fields. I was introduced to it earlier this year as I began a doctoral program in instructional design leadership. The iterative methodology allows for either a tangible item or a new process to be created and refined via rapid prototyping and dissemination for testing. In instructional design, it changes the paradigm from the ADDIE model that works towards getting a final solution or version of instruction deployed to deploying iterations of a solution for testing and feedback and then cycling the process again and again until the solution or version meets or exceeds what the user wants and seeks to enhance the user experience (UX). The Successive Approximation Model (SAM) from Allen and the Pebble-in-the-Pond Model from Merrill are two of the more recent instructional design models that employ iterative design ideas although neither are really new. Thanks for sharing this module.
