Wednesday, April 20

Tracks: Instructional Design

With each learning experience, we have an opportunity to craft a learner-friendly experience that drives engagement and behavior change with measurements that matter. This session will break down the four pillars of designing an experience, while looking at new tools, techniques, and resources to help jumpstart your next project. 

We’ll look at the 4 Ds, which include:

Define, understand, and know your audience before you design anything;

Design in which form follows function;

Develop, imagine, sketch, and prototype your concepts where you work out your ideas; and

Deliver, where you implement learning experiences that will delight your audience.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The elements for each pillar, and tools and resources to jumpstart your next project
  • Collaborative tools for wireframing, prototyping, and gathering feedback
  • Sources for design inspiration to make design work easier
  • How to evaluate real-world examples to fast track your design projects
