Instructional Design was founded during World War II, born of the need to educate soldiers about various tasks within a limited time. This foundation led to the development of Instructional Design as a field of study.
For a lot of people, the thought of learning brings to mind boring lectures, bulky training materials or manuals and even monotonous virtual learning.
Instructional Design simplifies learning by identifying the learning gap and combining the learning objectives, psychological behavior and communication strategy to develop effective and meaningful training.
Instructional Design in the Corporate Sector.
Instructional Design cuts across various sectors one of which is the corporate sector.
Here, Instructional Designers ensure that the staff of an organization are properly educated on new training programs and topics. They make use of training and materials, eLearning technologies and multimedia to develop learning experiences that meet the set standard of the organization.
Benefits of Instructional Design.
Instructional Designers collect, process and analyze data about learners’ needs as well as the organization’s objectives. Then they design effective learning solutions based on the data.
Instructional designers are important for every organization as they provide result-driven, cost-effective, engaging, and customized learning solutions.
Instructional Designers go through the process of gathering information about learners and the organization’s objectives. Once this is done, they set clear deliverables that align with the information they have gathered and then design learning solutions that meet both learners’ and the organisation’s objectives as well as their set deliverables.
Instructional Designers identify the easiest, shortest and most effective way to deliver training to learners. As a result, they make use of fewer resources while at the same time meeting the set learning objectives.
Instructional Designers seek to remove the monotonousness of learning by including interactivity in order to improve learners’ engagement and participation in the training content.
As Alexandre Dumas said, “All generalizations are dangerous, including this one.” Simply put, it is irrational to think that the same learning solution will work with a similar problem in a different environment.
Instructional Designers see each learning gap as specific and therefore design unique solutions for them.
