Many instructional designers, developers, and leaders complain that content is dumped on them by their SMEs and internal customers. They have no one to go to and explain the details of the kind of content they believe would be useful to learners. They realize that content produced this way are too far away from the realities of day-to-day workplace events, therefore, not valuable. Consequently, the programs they produce are theoretical, bland, and with no sense of relevance to the workers at work.

In the webinar,  you will get answers to these questions:
  • Why are designers, developers and leaders too far removed from realities of work? How does this impact the quality of our programs?
  • What should we do when someone dumps a “truckload” of PowerPoints and says, “I needed the course yesterday!
  • In the absence of more details, what should we do? How and where should we focus our research? What questions do we ask? How do we understand the details of the content?
  • How do we find the relevance and importance of the content in day-to-day real work?

Attend the workshop and learn Ray’s Tips on “Finding the Relevance of Content", to accelerate worker ability and productivity, as we, in the learning world, face the challenge of keeping up or staying ahead.
