“Instructional Design aims to compress the learning process and fill the gaps in our knowledge in the most effective way.”
Instructional design is the creation of learning experiences and materials in a manner that results in the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills. The discipline follows a system of assessing needs, designing a process, developing materials, and evaluating their effectiveness.
An instructional designer applies this systematic methodology (rooted in instructional theories and models) to design and develop content, experiences, and other solutions to support the acquisition of new knowledge or skills.
As a professional facilitator of learning, you are also responsible for creating the course design and developing all instructional materials, including presentation materials, participant guides, handouts, and job aids or other materials. Other competencies include responsibility for evaluating training, including assessing what was learned and whether the learning solution led to measurable behavior change.
Instructional Design and the Instructional Designer’s profile are integral and indispensable to the learning space.
In this module, you will learn the science of designing learning interventions.
