"Putting Design Back Into Instructional Design"


Anne Apking, CPT

 Does training need to be painful and boring? No! But must training turn into "ed-u-tainment" in order to get and keep the attention of our learners? Absolutely not! There is much that instructional designers can learn and apply from innovators and design thinkers. This session will connect the disparate domains of instructional design and design thinking so that developers of learning can blend the "science" with the "art" to guarantee learning sticks, is remembered, and changes performance.
