Presentation Description: Instructional Design: Elevating eLearning Design
In this session, we’ll explore principles that will help to elevate your e-learning design above the mundane, boring, rote patterns employed by many in our profession to become a stand-out e-Learning designer. Together, we’ll tackle a typical project that’s already been designed as an instructor-led training and convert it to an ELEVATED eLearning course. We’ll start by considering a holistic blueprint design and discussing the role a blueprint plays in creating an elevated design and helping you gain efficiency in your project. We’ll look at blueprint examples together. Then, we’ll storyboard several of the course’s instructional components together: (1) gaining attention/establishing relevance for the topic, (2) designing engaging activities for its core performance objectives, (3) brainstorming creative ways to present content undeserving of an activity, and (4) how to craft scenarios that carry impact. I’ll provide the ‘content’ and we’ll storyboard the designs on paper. I’ll share my ideas, you’ll share yours.
