The field of Instructional Technology might be best described as the intersection of several other applied and basic fields. It draws from fields as diverse as psychology, cognitive science, instructional science, computer science, communication, organizational development, philosophy, and curriculum development. Instructional Technology is not merely a borrower of knowledge from other fields, however. IT makes its own contributions to theory and research, adapting general learning theories to develop instructional theories of its own.
