Difference between "instructional strategies," "practices," and "techniques."

As our first BLOG entry, we have received this message from Courtney who has agreed tp allow us to post it on our Blog.

My name is Courtney and I am an advanced doctoral student who currently works for two professors of education here at the University of....  Much of their work is devoted to designing and implementing culturally responsive educational practices to assist teachers.
During one of our meetings they asked me to research the difference between "instructional strategies," "practices," and "techniques." The available literature I have reviewed does not appear to address this difference. I was wondering if you knew of any literature that specifically addresses how these terms differ within the field of education, or if they do at all? Or if you, yourself, would like to comment on this subject? I know they would appreciate any assistance or clarification.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Welcome to ESF's Blog

Welcome to ESF's Blog

We are delighted to offer this new feature to all our trainer and non-trainer clients and friends.

We are happy to offer the opportunity to our many clients to post their experiences of the successes they have had in training and education. It is also an opportunity for those newer to this field to gain knowledge from those who have taken our Workshops and used our IDLS, ITS, and TNA processes over the past forty years.

Well, maybe YOU haven't been in this field for that many years, but this is the year of our 40th Anniversary--1969--can you believe that! When someone asks about us, we tell them that we are the pioneers in the field of Instructional Technology who are still alive--and still working. We have had such a good time and rubbed elbows with so many great people over the years.

We are proud to be a part of this still ever-evolving field. We'd like to hear from all of you. Post your questions, comments, suggestions.

We sincerely hope you will enjoy this newest addition to ESF's website and please don’t hesitate to give us your feedback.

Thank you.

Drs. Mary and Peter Esseff
