A class of 37 in-service government school teachers from the Nablus (Palestine) district was studied to investigate the effects of 18 hours of training in Instructional Designer's Competencies (IDC) on teachers' planning routine, and their students' academic achievement. A questionnaire measured IDC in five domains: analysis, design, implementation, management, and evaluation. It was administered to the teachers before and after training. Results indicate that training teachers on instructional designer's competencies enhanced their planning routine and their students academic achievement; using true experimental designs like a pretest-posttest control group design is recommended in future research.
