Traditionally, Instruction or Training Design focuses on content. As Instructional Designers , we are taught to structure content to make it easier for learners to understand them. With multimedia, the focus shifts to wards technology – we think about
how to optimise the use of multimedia elements to support and enhance learning. But is this enough?
Using the Design thinking approach, we visualise our solutions through the lens of the learner and other stakeholders who might influence the outcomes of the training. We explore the problem statement for which training was pre-defined as a solution.
Adopting the Design Thinking Process, we define the ‘training problem’ from multiple perspectives; brainstorm possible solutions; prototype and test our ideas; iterating to arrive at the best solution.
This course integrate the Design Thinking techniques with Instructional Design practices to help you create more engaging learning experiences. It assumes that you have the foundational knowledge of Instructional Design.
