Don't pass this one up!  In this two-day workshop you will design compelling and effective training, use accelerated learning techniques and learn the 5 key instructional steps to get participant involvement and better results. This workshop has been totally revamped and updated so even if you took this workshop before, take the new version!

Specifically, you will learn how to: 

  • Identify performance problems that can be solved by training. 
  • Tailor your workshop to participant needs. 
  • Conduct a task analysis so participants know exactly what they are expected to do. 
  • Write the key points so that participants will remember them. 
  • Write learning objectives that follow the ABCD format. 
  • Use the key 5 instructional steps that achieve skill mastery and job results. 
  • Design instructional activities for any type of learning objective. 
  • Write an instructional design document. 

During the workshop, you will: 

  1. Write an instructional design within the first two hours. That’s accelerated! 
  2. Experience 10 different ways to change boring instruction and lectures into interactive exercises. 
  3. Get one-on-one coaching on your instructional design. Enjoy designing training that's fun.
  1. A very comprehensive workbook with job aids that walk you through the instructional design process.
  2. A one-page instructional design template.
  3. Templates for the various elements of writing your instructional design.

Bring your laptop so you can apply what you’re learning to a workshop you’re writing.

Coffee and morning snacks will be available on your arrival.


Kris Schaeffer, CPLP, has 40 years of experience in human resource development. When Kris got her CPLP from ATD, she aced her work product assignment in instructional design. She also did the content edit for the first version of ATD’s Learning System. Kris knows her stuff!

Kris’s professional work has focused on the analysis and design of customized training. Her instructional designs for customer service, sales, and safety training have been adopted by entire industries such as the cable + phone, direct store delivery (soft drinks, beer, snacks), and food manufacturing. A lot of other people believe that Kris knows her stuff!

Kris teaches subject experts how to design training so they can pass along their knowledge and skills so others can master them.

Kris has conducted this workshop for over 200 participants for the Chapter when it was designed for our Community Outreach Program volunteers. Now this revised workshop has a broader focus – for anyone who designs training that improves performance. The workshop now includes accelerated learning and other state of the art instructional methods.
