Good instructional design can make learning happen faster and more efficiently than what might happen more organically. Instructional design is the process of assessing the learning needs and then applying the appropriate learning strategy to meet them.
Understanding How People Learn
We are continually learning as we take in information, explore and solve problems, and interact with people. Why not put a little structure around the learning?
Three Core Components to Instructional Design
Understand How People Learn
It’s important to learn more about how we learn so that we can develop the right instructional methodology for the courses we design.
Construct Learning Activities
Switch from info-centric design to one that is more focused on the learner. That way we create more meaningful activities that tap into the learner’s motivations.
Measure the Effectiveness
By compressing daily activities and increasing opportunities for practice, you can decrease the time it takes to train new employees from 90 days to less than three weeks.
