    Course Description

    Often a glimmer of an idea initiates a discussion which leads to a request for the development of a training program. The process of developing a program is a combination of art and science. The instructional designer utilises their ability to systematically produce a creative document that allows them to facilitate a dynamic learning experience. When the process is complete; the designer looks back and checks to see that all parts of the “science” have been taken into account. Then the entire process is woven creatively as if it occurred in a systematic fashion. This fundamental workshop will provide you with a proven step-by-step process to design such a workbook in one day.
