Eight individuals learned about a fictitious vehicle, then designed instruction about it. The individuals were relative novices in instructional design, both in their small amount of professional training in the activity and the novelty of the subject matter. Protocols were coded for subproblems, types of knowing, and problem solving operators. A hypothesis is presented about the organization of problem-solving activity in this design task, in the form of a model in which functional roles are assigned to metaphorical agents in a design committee.
