Instructional Design

Developing training for struggle-free delivery

During the class, participants work on their real-life training decks. They will, at times, deliver content they’ve designed to develop an understanding of how design must support delivery. Throughout this process, they work together to modify the slides in real-time.

Participants in this training for instructional designers learn to

  • Accept the fact that trainers and learners are “busy people at work,” and that it’s their job to make the task of training and learning as easy as possible
  • Design training with an eye on delivery by someone else
  • Implement easy modifications to make slides easy for others to deliver
  • Identify and adapt to trainers’ strengths and weaknesses
  • Make it easy for trainers to set context and provide learners with immediate relevance and application back on the job
  • Design activities for successful execution
  • Design for flexibility by giving trainers alternate delivery methods
  • Make special accommodations when designing for SMEs
  • Apply these concepts to their future instructional design projects
