Intentional and thoughtful instructional design is necessary for successful virtual learning events. Well-designed virtual experiences (specifically, instructor-led synchronous experiences), supported by well-designed materials, keep learners motivated and engaged throughout the learning experience.
An effective instructional design process follows a system of assessing needs, designing a process, developing materials, and evaluating effectiveness. Creating programs for a virtual platform is no different. Core Instructional design fundamentals require the analysis and selection of the most appropriate strategies, methodologies, and technologies to maximize the learning experience and knowledge transfer—whether you are converting a face-to-face classroom course or designing for a virtual delivery from the beginning.
Aligned to the instructional design capability of the Talent Development Capability Model, this virtual instructional design certificate program will provide you with more than 20 ATD-exclusive tools and templates and the opportunity to practice using them on a flexible, authentic learning project. Your project allows you to demonstrate your new skills in writing effective learning objectives, outlining a virtual learning event, and >more.
