Pharmacy technicians today play a vital role in the pharmacy business and at other pharmacy practice sites. Technicians interact with patients, physicians, nurses, and health insurance providers. They work under the pharmacist's supervision and are allowed to assist in pharmacy activities that do not require the professional judgment of a pharmacist. Technicians are becoming more involved in the production and technical aspects of pharmacy, while pharmacists have become more involved with patient-care activities and have become the "dispensers of medicine".
Streamlined ID: A Practical Guide to Instructional Design presents a focused and generalizable approach to instructional design and development – one that addresses the needs of ID novices, as well as practitioners in a variety of career environments.

The book features an enhanced version of the classic ADDIE model (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation) that emphasizes the iterative nature of design and the role of evaluation throughout the design/development process. It clearly lays out a systematic approach that emphasizes the use of research-based theories, while acknowledging the need to customize the process to address a variety of pedagogical approaches: Instructivist, Constructivist, and Connectivist. The book opens with an overview of the basics of ID and each subsequent chapter describes major activities in the ID process with step-by-step instructions and tips for streamlining the process. Numerous job aids serve to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of your design efforts.
