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.
To begin designing more effective learning material, whether for online courses or employee training, it comes down to a few critical components:
Analysis - To create ideal learning material, understanding the learners you serve is a must. Why are they studying the subject? Why is a learning solution required? What are the goals of the course? This assessment is what drives the development of learning objectives and dictates the method of content delivery.
Design & Development - This stage includes the most hands-on aspects of instructional design: the outlining, drafting, and development of the curriculum, lesson plans and any other learning material deemed beneficial to the learning process.
Implementation - Now it’s time to put your clever design strategy to the test. To find out how the learning material performs in a real-world setting, the next step is to share it, including all workbooks, assessments, and video demonstrations, on a provisional basis.
Evaluation - Without evaluating the success of the learning solution, instructional design would be guesswork. The methods of evaluation used depend on the learning objective in question, but the basics are simple. Did the course do what it was designed to? If the employees who completed training are succeeding back on the job, that’s a good sign. There are several in-depth evaluation models to choose from as well, including the Learning-Transfer Evaluation Model, Kirkpatrick’s Four levels of Training Evaluation, the Philips ROI Methodology, and several others.
An instructional designer makes learning accessible to the learner with a defined propose to meet core learning objectives. It’s the knowledge and experience to better understand how people learn differently combined with the ability to create engaging content. Not an easy outcome to achieve!
