Are Instructional Designers Making Themselves Irrelevant?

So what does that mean for the poor instructional designer when over 70% of the learning they create delivers poor customer experiences? The easy thing for an instructional designer to do is to rely on simple instinct and maintain the status quo.

The UX of Co-Design: Experience Principles for Successful Client Workshops

Adaptive Path

In the past six months, I've been leading design teams of twenty, sometimes thirty people. Some of these people are designers, but the majority are managers, business strategists, front-line workers, and P&L owners. Together we have been solving big wonky strategy and design problems that matter deeply to how our client will continue to support and grow relationships with their customers in the future. Without carefully designed activities, unhappy groups abound.

Another model for support

Clark Quinn

In a couple of instances , I’ve worked with organizations on a specific project, but in a particular way. For each, my role was to lead the design. My role was to develop the initial template that the rest of the content fit. Note that this isn’t a template for tarting it up, but instead a template about what the necessary elements and details around them were to ensure that the elements (e.g. design strategy

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. The overall project: a generic description of services, a methodology for adding those services, and software that suppots this approach. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it. So, what is the future of learning design?

Learning Experience Design Strategy

Clark Quinn

On our weekly twitter learning fest, #lrnchat , I regularly identify myself as a learning experience design strategist. When you think about creating learning experiences, you are talking about design. You need a design process, tools, and good concepts around learning and engagement. Really, both my book on designing engaging learning experiences, and my forthcoming one on mobile learning, are at core about design. Tags: design strategy

No Sweat DIY Infographics

Strategy & Design; But Wait, There’s More

Adaptive Path

Strategy and design are two crucial elements when it comes to site design and development. In my work at Adaptive Path, I’ve worked on a number of projects that focus on these two key elements. We’ll end the project with a stack of deliverables, often including HTML templates and CSS files, the pieces and parts the client will need to move forward. It shows where the Strategy and Design tasks stop and where Implementation starts.

Making designing good learning easier

Clark Quinn

The problem was content coming as PPTs from SMEs, and the question was poignant: “Given limited time and resources on a project how can you plan in advance to ensure that your learning is engaging and creates effective outcomes?&# I commented a reply, but I’d like to elaborate on that. It’s a recursive design problem: people need to be able to design better, what training, job aids, tools, and/or social learning can we develop to make this work?

This mean that they had to think of social change as campaign templates so they could do more systematic iteration and learn from it. “If you are constantly changing, you are not iterating.”. Their primary communications method is text and that lends itself to templates.

Creating Stellar Learning

Clark Quinn

Getting the details right about instructional design is quite hard, or at least it appears that way, judging from how many bad examples there are. Whether you’re creating products for commercial sale, or solutions for internal or external partners, you want to take your learning experience design to the next level. So, how does an organization improve their learning design process to create stellar learning? Teams can learn good design.

Templates, project workspaces, forms, integration with productivity suites, etc. Actually, I mean “More on Facebook,” but as I was once accused of using fancy headlines to draw clicks (to this site with no advertising), I thought I would play the part and see if that behavior makes any difference. Tongue is firmly encheeked.
