Tracks: Instructional Design

Often instructional designers and developers find themselves mired in challenging conversations and placing blame for problems with their projects. This occurs when roles and responsibilities are not well determined or laid out clearly from the beginning of the project.

In this session, you will wear several project team “hats” as we work through determining how best to diagram all participants in the process so that all team members are engaged and participate to reach project completion success. Diagrams may include components like role definition, responsibilities, interrelationships, and interdependencies. Explore how to determine who in your organization will likely hold one of the roles, and learn to edit and review a timeline that works for your project(s). We’ll address creating an agenda for the project kickoff, including key questions to answer during the assessment process.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How best to diagram the design, development, evaluation, and iterative processes for your projects, through the lens of what works for your organization
  • Ways to encapsulate key aspects of explaining to the project team the way things will work during the lifecycle of the project
  • How to craft a sample agenda for the project kickoff event for your project
  • Key questions to be answered during the assessment process
