Practice theory for ID

I worked for several months on a chapter for an upcoming book in honor of David Jonassen, edited by four former presidents of AECT. Here is a draft of that chapter. The full reference:
Wilson, B. G. (2013). A practice-centered approach to instructional design. In M. M. Spector, B. B. Lockee, S. E. Smaldino, & M. Herring (Eds.), Learning, problem solving, and mind tools: Essays in honor of David H. Jonassen (pp. 35-54). New York: Routledge.

In this essay I explore viewing instructional-design work from a practice-theoretic perspective, with a strong dose of craft theory thrown in. Send me email if you have a response - I'd love to engage people in this kind of conversation.
