June Workshop – Presented by Darryl Sink
Workshop Title: Instructional Design: Reinforcing Fundamentals and Providing Advanced Skills
On Friday, June 11th, you’re invited to spend an exciting day with one of the true masters in the field of Instructional Systems Design, Dr. Darryl Sink. Dr. Sink has created this workshop especially for those who want to gain fundamentals as well as advanced techniques in instructional design. While only a one-day workshop, you will come away with specific tools and techniques that you can use back on the job. You’ll receive a detailed participant guide with over 50 job aids and examples.
The workshop provides an opportunity to apply what you learn to a project of your own. It focuses on the practical aspects of developing training and educational programs that can get you the results you need. This workshop is meant for those learning to be course developers and instructional designers. It is also for managers of learning and performance groups who want a consistent design procedure for courses developed in their own organization.
During the day, you will learn to:
- Identify the business needs and drivers (First things first or where to start.)
- Specify the program or course goals based on the business needs (I need to know where to go from here.)
- Generate a content/task analysis related to the program goals (I need to figure out what content is necessary and sufficient to meet the program or course goals.)
- Write key and enabling learning objectives using the content/task analysis (I need to establish targets for the learners and the training program to provide direction.)
- Develop procedures to test the key and enabling objectives including selected response test, constructed response test, and checklist (I need to know if they learned what was intended.)
- Develop your lessons/modules using an eight-step lesson design (I need a plan to get the learners from where they are to where they need to be to do their job and meet the business need.)
- Select and/or design learning activities including authentic practice, case studies, role-plays and other involvement activities for your program (I need to make sure the learning experience is engaging.)
- Develop a plan to conduct try-out and revision cycles of your training programs following research-based strategies (I need to know if this program really worked with the target population and if not, how it can be revised to be more effective.)
Come expecting to learn practical powerful techniques and tips from a master designer and teacher while you make progress on a training project of your own.
