To be successful in today's world of learning and development, exceptional content, proven processes and industry-recommended tools are all absolute must-haves to create impactful learning. In this course, you’ll not only analyse content, but you'll also focus on how to design materials that will engage and captivate adult learners.


Participants will explore learner preferences, discover how neuroscience can impact the effectiveness of a program, learn practical storyboarding techniques and how to create effective visual and graphic design.


By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • apply the key principles of adult learning to instructional design
  • identify different types of cognitive load and design to manage them
  • create basic visual designs that facilitate long-term learning
  • identify and articulate precise learning outcomes
  • build feedback mechanisms into course design.


This course is ideal for L&D professionals tasked with the design and creation of new learning. You will learn the tools-of-the-trade that every instructional designer should know, and how to put those tools to work in instructional design models and training projects as you design for maximum retention and learning transfer.
