      A Guide on Instructional Design Theories and Design Application

      SGD $500.00

      Course Description

      Instructional design, or instructional systems design (ISD), is the practice of creating "instructional experiences which make the acquisition of knowledge and skill more efficient, effective, and appealing." The process consists broadly of determining the state and needs of the learner, defining the end goal of instruction, and creating some "intervention" to assist in the transition. Ideally, the process is informed by pedagogically (process of teaching) and andragogically (adult learning) tested theories of learning and may take place in student-only, teacher-led or community-based settings. The outcome of this instruction may be directly observable and scientifically measured or completely hidden and assumed. There are many instructional design models but many are based on the ADDIE model with the five phases: analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. As a field, instructional design is historically and traditionally rooted in cognitive and behavioral psychology, though recently constructivism has influenced thinking in the field.Know the fundamentals of Instructional Design and produce quality educational content.- Know Key Instructional Design Models- Understand what are Adult Learning Principles- Understand the Overview of Learning Theories- The importance of Training Needs Analysis- Introduction to ID Fundamentals- What are the Cognitive Approaches- Determining the Right Audio Strategy- Writing Effective Storyboards and Objectives- Content Types and Their Visualization Approaches- Creating Effective Assessments- Guide to Editing - mLearning Essentials and Strategies
