Advanced Skills in Instructional Design

Course Code TOD2

Duration 4 Days / 32 Hours

Fees 1790 $


This program helps persons who possess significant expertise in training design, as it allows them to master their expertise in a professional and unique manner. It provides you also with models that help you gradually to design inspiring training techniques that focus on making the content relevant to learners first and foremost.

Who is this program for?

This program is directed at trainers, instructors, facilitators, and persons who have previously attended a training course in design training and now want to develop and enhance their designing skills, and persons who have attended “the Essential Skills in Instructional Design” (TOD1).

Program’s objectives

At the end of this training program, each learner will be able to:

  1. Implement the seven-step “learning strategy” in all the materials, to ensure a well-built course.
  2. Distinguish between the three parts of Merrill's component display theory.
  3. Describe the content-performance matrix (Clark’s matrix).
  4. Prepare delicate strategies and presentation types.
  5. Apply Reigeluth’s Elaboration theory and cognitive zoom principle.
  6. Link the best learning techniques to the content and to the learners’ needs.
  7. Design the course using the Accelerated Learning foundations.
  8. Design interactive “lectures”.
  9. Design “discussions” that result in active participation.
  10. Design the learner’s pre- connecting tools.
  11. Design clear and purposeful “presentations”.
  12. Design realistic “case-studies”.

  14. Design realistic practical exercises.
  15. Design learning “games”.
  16. Design realistic “simulation” techniques.
  17. Design the “role-playing” method.
  18. Design the collective “review” method effectively.
  19. Design a performance assessment paper as a guide for learners while committing errors in performance.
  20. Design the “summarization” needed to enhance learning.
  21. Design the feedback.
  22. Choose the most effective feedback method for the lesson.
  23. Describe the test conditions and plan for it.
  24. Distinguish between the three basic types of tests.
  25. Design the written tests, multiple-choice tests, true/false tests and the open-ended questions tests.
  26. Describe the three critical factors in testing good performance.
  27. Design the “performance” checklist.
  28. Choose the best organization for the lessons’ plans.
  29. Design the course based on the adult learning principles.
  30. Design the activities that the learner should perform after the program for support.
  31. Summarize and enhance the transfer to practice.
  32. Verify the validity and effectiveness of the materials and methods.
