What is Instructional Design Exactly? 

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:

  • Identifying and understanding the learners in the target group,
  • Clearly defining course goals, objectives, and learning outcomes,
  • Creating engaging learning activities and assignments,
  • Creating metrics to support learning objectives, and
  • Using different media to improve the participants learning experience.

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.

When would you use Excellerate's Instructional Design Service?

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:

  • An existing course needs to be updated.
  • A course isn't working the way it should.
  • The scale and cost of a consultant led programme would prevent you from providing the amount of training you really need.
  • You have the subject matter experts and all the content but no idea where to begin or how to develop the training.
  • Your people have the expertise, relationships and credibility but they need the training resources [and facilitation skills.]
  • You have the in house instructional design capability but your trainers are already over committed on other projects.

Combine your content and expertise with our design experience to create and deliver cost effective quality training on demand

In summary, you would choose to use an Excellerate Instructional Designer when: 

  • You have the knowledge and expertise that needs to be shared within the organisation but you don't have the capability, time or resources to make it happen.

  • It makes sense from a cost, consistency and credibility perspective to have your own trainers and subject matter experts deliver your training programme

You retain complete control

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. 

You can deliver training on demand

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.

How does the Instructional Design Process Work?
