The central component of the field of educational planning and instructional design is the principles and methods of instructional design. This also includes questions concerning educational planning. Instructional design encompasses the entire instructional process, from the analysis of learning needs and goals to the development of a system of learning. It includes the development of learning materials and tasks as well as the testing and evaluation of the entire instructional process and learning activities. This process can be divided into the following steps: - Identification of specific educational needs - Analysis of the target group and framework requirements - Identification of educational goals - Selection of content - Design of the learning environment - Development of learning material - Implementation of media - Implementation of the learning strategy - Evaluation of the effectiveness of the strategy both during and after the learning process The successful conception and implementation of technology-based learning environments is a collective product of experts with regard to the learning content to be conveyed, the instructional design, and the implementation of technology. Instructional design is a planning science based on established theories of learning and instruction. It can be described as an interface between various other disciplines, including psychology, cognitive science, instructional science, curriculum and lesson planning theory, computer science, communications, and the sociology of knowledge. However, it is not based entirely on the knowledge of other disciplines, but rather contributes to the development of theories and research itself by way of empirical studies on the effectiveness and transfer efficiency of various learning arrangements.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
