  • Would you like to learn the basics of being an instructional designer? 
  • Are you new to instructional design and wish to understand the ins and outs, application of trends, and implementation of useful strategies?
  • Are you curious about how to identify effective design and apply it to your projects with an emphasis on project management, planning, and implementation issues? 
  • Have you noticed how much the learning industry is changing?

Then this is the course for you! This is a hands-on, activity-based Instructional Systems Design (ISD) course designed to examine the ISD processes within a project-based context. As a participant, expect to examine the various phases and models of creating, implementing and evaluating instruction. Part of this process includes learning practical tips that allow you to look at the ISD process from the learner’s perspective. These tips will also provide you with techniques that shorten the design and development process. Another essential part of dissecting the ISD process is to deconstruct how technology and brain science have directly affected the work that we do and how we do it.

You will become part of a team that is responsible for designing and evaluating an original lesson or unit of instruction while collaborating with other class members, a sponsor, and a mentor to apply the lessons of the class directly to the project. 

Completing the project leads directly to your application of the practical aspects of designing learning experiences for the classroom and workplace. Expect to see an emphasis on effective design, planning and implementation. To assist you in your design process, we have enlisted the assistance of various project sponsors and/or SMEs who will provide guidance to your team throughout the course, thus allowing your team to successfully complete the assigned project. The goal is for participants to:
  • Apply different methodologies to training design
  • Use an instructional design model
  • Prepare, research and deliver strong content
  • Write instructional materials from scratch using proven, results-oriented techniques
  • Experience the true demands of the Instructional Design role in practice.

You will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of this program.
