Paul Clothier
This highly practical and interactive workshop will teach you how to analyze, design, develop, and deliver highly effective training and learning content using instructional processes and methods that take into account learner needs, goals, and evaluation practices. You will study some foundational learning theories and practical techniques for designing instructor-led training, online learning, or mobile learning on any subject for any audience. In the workshop, you will focus on a hands-on instructional project of your own—from goals and requirements through to storyboarding and design. The principles and techniques covered will apply to any type of instruction, from K–12, to colleges and universities, through training in the corporate world.

By the end of this course, you will be able to understand basic instructional design theories, effectively analyze learning needs, define solid instructional objectives, create a storyboard for your instructional project, write effective and engaging content for your project, build interactivity into instruction, use graphics to support instruction, and effectively evaluate learning.
