Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) June 16, 2014
Allen Interactions Inc., an internationally acclaimed custom learning design, development, strategic consulting, and technology firm, announces their next premium training webinar for e-learning professionals. The webinar, Design Thinking for Instructional Designers, provides instructional designers wanting to break the molds of their current e-learning projects with techniques and strategies employed in both design thinking and human centered design.
In today’s demanding workplace, many instructional designers find themselves paying more attention to theory, documentation, and content curation than the actual product they are designing. Designers, in turn, feel more analytical and structured instead of carefree and creative. On Thursday, June 26th, 1-3 pm Central, Angel Green, senior instructional strategist at Allen Interactions, invites you to discuss the power of design thinking, human-centered design and the creative process, walking you through an instructional designer’s guide engineered to tap into your (and your project team’s) creative power.
“Early actions in course design often lead to big missteps in the instructional product created”, says Green, “my hope is that this webinar will help guide instructional designers to harness the power of design thinking, allowing them to create truly engaging, meaningful instruction.”
In this webinar, Angel Green will teach participants to:
- Recognize reasons why design is often overlooked in the instructional design process
- Refocus design on the learner and the behavior change desired instead of the content
- Utilize methods to encourage the creative thought process within project teams
- Incorporate design thinking and strategies using the Allen Interactions Design Thinking for Instructional Designers Practitioner’s Guide
