Merril, D.M. (2002), First Principles of Instruction, Educational Technology Research and Development, Vol. 50, Issue 3, pg. 43 

First principles of instruction is a attempt by M. David Merrill to identify fundamental invariant principles of good instructional design, regardless of pedagogic strategy. It can be used both as an instructional design model and as evaluation grid to judge the quality of a pedagogical design. (see Edutech Wiki for more discussion)


This is an often cited and important paper.
