Design of instruction is an important feature in teacher education at fulfilling the needs of 4Cs (critical thinker, communicator, collaborator, creator) developing "a globally competitive learners". As Instructional design models (ID) need to move from adopting a standard approach to developing models that have an impact on learners profiles, creating a much better learning experience, skills and knowledge both in classroom and online. Traditional ID models will have to be re-modelled and re-designed to deliver instructions which are more learner-centered than process-centered. An Integral ASIE Instructional Design Model (Analyze, Strategize, Implement and Evaluate) is an online planning ID Model which serves as alternative to the existing traditional ID models which support experiential and collaborative learning for learners in gaining and re-producing information. It is interactive to the user, integrative in planning the content, prescriptive in the planning procedures and constructive in the organization of the components. Instructors/teachers plan their instruction in the planning mechanism known as Multiple Integration Worksheet (MIW) by interacting within and between components in the "Reflection Cycle" of the model and it allows sharing of information among teachers across nations. This unique features provides flexibility in customisation of items and guide instructors/ teachers in formulating & integrating the best possible designing practices giving opportunities for learners to explore their potential establishing a more participative, communicative and innovative learning environment. It is accessible at www.asiemodel.com.
