Improve the design skills of the people who shape your learning programmes
Instructional design is based on the idea that training is most effective when it provides learners with a clear statement of what they must be able to do as a result of training and how their performance will be evaluated.
During the instructional design process, designers should be aware of the overall business context, including how the learning need relates to the overall business strategy, as well as the goals and objectives of key stakeholders.
Instructional design helps to ensure that learning supports organisations in their quest for excellence and meets the needs of individual learners.
These training course materials provide everything required to help the instructional designers in your organisation develop the skills and knowledge needed to build effective learning and development interventions that get results.
