Many researchers investigated the efficacy of using worked examples in classroom instruction and provided evidence in the effectiveness of worked example instruction. However, there are limited studies in worked example design. The purpose of this study is to generate the instructional design principles of worked examples. Seven principles are identified in this study, (a) imagination principle, (b) completion principle, (c) fading principle, (d) process principle, (e) presentation principle, (f) media principle, and (h) timing principle. Future research suggestions are also provided.
