76 Tips on Turning Instructional Design Challenges into Successes

76 Tips on Turning Instructional Design Challenges into Successes

February 26, 2014

by Karen Forni

Failures and mistakes aren’t necessarily bad things, especially if they happen when you’re trying something new. It’s how you react to them that makes or breaks a project.

eLearning, mLearning, and other learning-related projects are highly prone to mistakes and failures. Besides the inherent risk of trying new things, there are so many issues that can arise in learning projects. You can take steps to avoid some of these issues, and to minimize the project impact if they do happen, but some element of project failure is almost inevitable because so many factors are beyond your control.

While learning from your own mistakes and failures is valuable, learning from others’ mistakes and failures can be both valuable and painless. In this eBook, 13 learning professionals who have dealt with numerous learning disasters and challenges give us their best tips for dealing with learning-project mistakes, failures, and other challenges. Topics covered include:

  • Avoiding and resolving issues through effective communication
  • Managing project scope and expectations
  • Planning
  • Designing, developing, and delivering for success and improvement
  • The people factor
  • Identifying and developing resources
  • Addressing and learning from mistakes and failures
