You see potential in good design. You can change behavior, drive results, decrease errors, and improve engagement. But, even the best designs are jeopardized if the process lacks the ability to support them.

Learn about the Successive Approximation Model (SAM), and understand the power of using prototyping for the design and development of engaging learning experiences.

We believe how a project begins has a profound impact on its success. We believe this so passionately that we developed our very own method of kicking off projects – the Savvy Start! The Savvy Start is a collaborative meeting unique to SAM during which instructional designers, developers, stakeholders, and learners come together and brainstorm, sketch, and prototype instructional treatments for performance challenges.

Because we believe the Savvy Start is so vital to success, we’ve created a mock-savvy workshop, our kickoff design session in our Instructional Design Process.

During this workshop, we will use submissions from workshop attendees to illustrate how we design, sketch, and even prototype instructional treatments for performance challenges.

You’ll be part of the conversation, working in teams to brainstorm and sketch instructional design treatments. You’ll get down and dirty with prototypes, trashing your first few iterations and building on each others ideas and opinions in order to create the best functional design.
