Instructional designers get pressed to do things in a hurry. I know from experience, no one calls an outside vendor when they have plenty of time, and I’ve been in that role for thirty years. I also learned through sometimes bitter experience, which things will make a project take longer and which ones will make it go more smoothly. 

In this workshop, you will get hands-on practice using examples from your own work to master what I consider to be the three core principles of instructional design. These are the steps you don’t want to leave out, no matter how big a hurry you’re in. They each have the potential to save you from the time and pain of rework.

1) Task Analysis – How can you begin designing training unless you know exactly what is required of your learners when they have completed the training? This type of task analysis won’t take long. Learn about the high-tech tool that makes this step easy.

2) Performance Objectives/Measurement - A lot of designers write these, but not many designers get the most use out of them. Good objectives make creating good measurement of objectives easy. 

3) Prototype/Learner Tryout - You have to build some part of that course first, pick the most critical piece and develop a prototype. This takes no extra time. The learner tryout of your prototype is the step most of our clients tell me they don’t have time for. But this step saves much more time than it takes to conduct. I promise.
