Learner-centered rather than teacher-centered.
Using technology to enhance and activate the learning experience.
Combining synchronous (face-to-face or virtual) and asynchronous instructional opportunities with independent and collaborative online learning.
Motivation is Internal

The joy of learning is as indispensable in study as breathing is in running. ~Simone Weil
IDEAL & Bloom's Together at Last!
IDEAL is ideal for the ADULT LEARNER
This design philosophy serves the special issues/attributes/needs of adult learners:
Adults expect to be guided in a "normal movement" from dependency toward increasing self-directedness.
Adults bring an ever-increasing reservoir of experience as a rich resource for learning in the "classroom."
Adults are ready to learn something when they realize/understand how it will help them cope with real-life tasks or problems.
Adults need to know the reason why they should learn something.
By embedding a social component to the learning, IDEAL addresses the recognition that the most powerful, long lasting motivators for adult learners are internal.
Active learning environments & facilitative teaching.
Instructor engagement with students.
Learning through doing - initially with assistance and then independently.
Student-centered instructional strategies.
Interactive formative and summative assessment mechanisms.
Instructional environment takes precedence over information transmittal.
Guide on the Side vs. Sage on the Stage. (Learner to learner along with learner to expert rather that only learner to content.)
