Is your instructional design world one of complexity, varied technologies, and speed demands? In response to these demands, a variety of innovative and creative methodologies have been developed that result in more productivity and effective performance. Participate in this engaging session to establish a foundation in understanding the range of methodologies and tools applicable today to instructional design. There is a revolution in instructional design happening today, come join the revolution!

Staying current in the models for effective instructional design is more than keeping up with the latest technologies. Models for understanding how to move a program from concept to implementation continue to be more innovative and creative.

Understanding and being able to apply models like AGILE, LEAN, SAM, BPR and others as design methodologies gives us greater flexibility as well as linking us to the same world of our subject matter experts and business leaders with whom we collaborate.

Understanding the number of exciting methodologies possible to be used by those of us who design learning exceeds the time available in a single event. Register for this program to first get a foundation of the range of possibilities as well as experience the application of one. Then learn about the ability to continue your learning journey through the variety of methodologies with a Learning Innovations Special Interest Group (SIG) that will meet periodically in the future.

This event is for you if you are interested in:
  • Exploring today’s context and challenges for learning design
  • Becoming aware of the range of methodologies to meet these challenges
  • Going deeper into AGILE and LEAN as applied to learning design
  • Applying a new methodology with colleagues
  • Knowing how to continue exploring other methodologies in the future in a “sandbox“ environment with others
