TRAIN THE INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNER
How do you keep courses accessible, interactive and engaging–as well as covering all topics and most importantly, meeting corporate goals? Effective training begins with instructional design and good instructional design is an art. We teach essential skills to transfer knowledge to adult learners in ways that are educational, interesting and, most of all, effective. People absorb knowledge in different ways. Because of this, an instructional designer must be well-versed in developing training that can not only reach a diverse population, but do so effectively and succinctly. ID training can help your learning teams polish their skills, and expand their knowledge base to create compelling training materials.
