Excellerate's instructional design expertise and proven methodology produces learner centred performance based courseware that enables in house trainers to meet their organisation's learning and development needs. We work in partnership with your trainers and subject matter experts to design, develop and deliver relevant and effective instructor led staff training that's on time, on budget and fit for purpose.
Instructional design is a systematic process that begins with understanding the learner in their performance context and then engaging learners in active learning to support greater learner achievement. This process involves:
The final product may be in the form of participant and leader guides, audio visual aids, learner job aids, technical documentation or simulations. The development process ensures that the training need is clearly defined, the courses are well designed, there are quality materials that can be used before, during and after training, and appropriate strategies are applied for effective knowledge transfer.
Those responsible for training and development frequently face the daunting task of having to provide training that addresses a particular issue. They find that existing course materials don't address their specific needs, and close enough just isn't good enough, so they need to create an entirely new programme. Then there are situations when:
Professional graphic designers use specialist tools to prepare and display your documents but if you ever need to update or edit your training materials then you will typically need to pay for this service. Excellerate uses the same Microsoft products that you do which means you can easily edit all the documents we produce whenever you want.
When you own the materials you can deploy your training as often as required, reusing the documents for any number of participants, without incurring licensing fees as all the resources and templates are owned by you.
We begin by taking the time to listen to and fully understand your needs along with the unique culture and challenges that exist within your organisation then we translate this insight in to an engaging training programme that delivers your desired learning and business outcomes. This means during your instructional design project you can expect Excellerate to:
Work closely with your subject matter experts to ensure that your training is hardwired to on job performance.
