Why should we study instructional design? What difference will this skill make to an organization? If you have ever had the experience of sitting through a training session or learning module and feeling that it was a waste of time, then you will immediately understand the value of designing instructional modules that engage the learner and benefit the organization. 

This practical, hands-on course introduces learning theories and models (ADDIE) that support the development of learning modules and enables you to apply these principles to support the professional development and training needs of your organization.
