A ‘starter’ bibliography on design models for teaching and learning

For the increasing number of students doing Masters’ dissertations or Ph.D’s on course or instructional design I have collected together for convenience all the references made in my chapter on course design models for my open textbook, ‘Teaching in a Digital World.’ However, there are many other publications – this cannot be considered a comprehensive list. Also note the date of this blog post: anything published after this will not be here, unless you let me know about it. I also tend to give preference to open access publications, which means that there are a lot of articles in academic journals not on this list that should be there.

In return, I would really appreciate other suggestions for references that you have found to be valuable or influential (open access or not.).
