Course description

Rapid Training Design

This Rapid Training Design train-the-trainer workshop is intended for designers with a solid foundation in the basic principles of instructional design who want a faster, leaner, more adaptable way to create training. You’ll learn to reduce the amount of content in a course, make more efficient design and development decisions, and use time-saving shortcuts. The rapid design process, also known as rapid prototyping, agile design, or the sprint model, will help you turn large training projects into a series of more manageable segments. You’ll also explore ways to involve stakeholders early and more often, reduce rework, and focus your efforts on the highest priority content. In short, you’ll create more training with fewer resources. This approach is applicable whether you create classroom instruction, on-the-job training, e-learning tutorials, or virtual classroom training.

This workshop is available as on-site/company specific. For programs held or attended in Canada, listed prices will be charged in CAD.
