811 Instructional Design Meets Process Improvement
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, March 27
Designers experience waste during the development of blended learning curricula. Multiple meetings, storyboards, learner personas, and prototypes create a framework for the finalized product; however, failure to eliminate process redundancies (waste) will produce no standard products. What if there were a methodology that could streamline and standardize instructional development among designers, learners, and customers?
In this session, you will learn about the Lean methodology to help standardize instructional design practices in your organization. You’ll create a process map that lays out a current instructional design process to identify waste in the process, and you’ll engage with Lean tools that help identify and eliminate waste in processes.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why using process improvement (Lean methodologies) can increase learner productivity
- How to implement process improvement (Lean) methods
- About process improvement tools
- About the benefits for learners, designers, and customers of implementing process improvement tools in instructional design
Designers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.)
