Program Overview

Program Overview

Developed for participants new to instructional design or for those who want to gain a comprehensive skill set, this is the complete workshop for designing outcome-based training. The program content is based on key knowledge and actions defined by the ASTD Competency Model Area of Expertise for Instructional Design. You will leave knowing how to design a complete program that aligns with your business goals, including participant guides, instructor guides, and other materials. In addition, you will have an opportunity to work on the design and development of your own training program throughout the workshop.

Why You Should Attend:

  • Gain a strong foundation in the needs analysis process to ensure your training initiatives are aligned with organization goals.
  • Develop engaging instructional events that take human memory and learning processes into account.
  • Create participant guides, facilitator guides, and supporting materials using templates provided in the workshop.
  • Ensure your training has the impact you and your organization expect.

What to Expect:

  • Pre-Work: Choose one of your current training programs to work on during the workshop and read the ASTD Infoline "Basics of ISD Revisited."
  • Homework/Intersession Work: For the online program, intersession work includes a weekly online discussion forum, where you will post assignments and engage with your peers.
  • Supplemental Resources: This program includes tools and templates to help you apply what you learned on the job.
  • Technical Requirements: The online version of this program is conducted in the WebEx Training Center. Special software is not required. You only need a standard web browser and telephone or VoIP capability to participate. There are no technical requirements for the face-to-face program
  • Online Courses Only:  During the online program, you will collaborate in “real time” with your facilitator and classmates via interactive group discussions, polls, chats, and whiteboards. In addition, you will have access to an online learning portal with discussion boards and program materials.
