Webinar Recording Details


During this session, Dr. Allen experienced some technical interruptions, but they are short.  Kindly be patient with them.  It'll be worth it.

As instructional designers, we know the difference between presenting information and providing learning experiences. But creating quality learning experiences that meet the challenge of being meaningful, memorable, and motivational isn’t a job for the unprepared. If you study all the research, guidelines, and methods promoted, you can become overwhelmed quickly and fall back to content presentations that usually achieve little. Happily, what you really, really need to do can be boiled down to a small number of surefire approaches that are guaranteed to work.

This session presents 6 simplifying strategies to achieve powerful results, win greater support, and make our work easier—all at the same time! 

In this session, you will learn how to do the following and much more…
  • Design backwards (it’s faster, easier, and better)
  • Continuously evaluate designs as they come together
  • Avoid excessive content presentation and achieve greater content mastery
  • Challenge awareness goals and replace them with the “real” goals
