As part of my edX Micro Masters course on Instructional Design, I was tasked on creating a podcast about the Dick and Carey Model of Instructional Design. The Dick and Carey Model is a systemic, linear approach to the Instructional Design process. Like the ADDIE model, Dick and Carey is one of the most popular Instructional Design models. It starts by clearly identifying your goals and objectives prior to writing curriculum or beginning instructional design and development. ]

This process can be customized to fit the needs of your learners, your project, your timeline, and your organization. For instance, you could condense it into fewer steps or expand it to include additional steps. Some of the steps can be completed parallel to each other and revisions should be iterative.
