Your client/stakeholder/customer wants a very specific training. From previous experience you have concerns about their approach. At the same time, you know that simply stating your professional opinion will only go so far. You need data.
That’s where Instructional Design comes in. It’s a process, practice, science and art that defines needs and identifies the most effective ways to approach the solution. Not personal preference. Not the “in” delivery method.
When you follow instructional design principles, your client/stakeholder/customer will have the facts to help them make the most informed decision for their training needs.
Will clients/stakeholders/customers always follow these recommendations? Of course not. But as a training professional using the instructional design process allows you to have the confidence that they had the data to make an informed decision.
TrainSmart’s Instructional Design Fundamentals will step you through this process and assist you with designing and developing impactful training courses.
