Instructional Design Program

Instructional design is the process of converting information into rich learning content, using established learning theories. It is a systematic process that involves analyzing learner profiles and learning needs, organizing information according to established standards and creating learning plans and content to achieve specific goals.

This 90 days’ Instructional Design program was curated along with Lee Hecht Harrison. It provided best practices to our Learning and Human Resources personnel who experienced outcome-based training from a learner’s perspective.

During this journey, they learnt best practices for conducting a needs assessment, completing a job/task analysis, and designing and developing courses. They also discovered a structured step-by-step process which they followed and applied immediately in their own learning program development.

By the end of the 90 day journey, all participants designed complete programs in groups that was aligned with the business goals, including participant guides, instructor guides, visual support, and other materials. In addition to the design they also had the opportunity to execute their projects in their respective functional areas. A virtual ceremony was hosted for graduating participants.
