Guidelines for Manuscripts Describing Instructional Design or Assessment: The IDEAS Format
The article focuses on guidelines for manuscripts describing instructional design. The academic success of faculty members in higher education has been primarily based on the scholarship of research and its resultant publication. A Task Force of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy was charged to develop standardized criteria for manuscripts submitted to the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education (AJPE) for the category of Instructional Design and Assessment. These guidelines apply to innovations that describe and evaluate instructional design and include new courses, parts of courses, integration of selected competencies across the curriculum (e.g., service learning, critical thinking, communication), assessment of instructional outcomes, and the use of technologies and new delivery methods.
