"We have a great idea for a training and you have eight weeks to build it!" Sound familiar? No matter what your timeline for content design and development might be, our streamlined instructional design strategy and portfolio of supporting tools can help you plan, develop, and launch a successful training project. In this session, you will learn how to maximize your project development capacity through an organized system. You'll take a close look at our tools to support the curriculum development process—from the initial needs assessment through development, evaluation, and ongoing CQI. You'll learn ways to avoid common pitfalls and "time bandits" for instructional designers—including creative ways to reimagine content, keeping stakeholders from being sidetracked by minor details, and using prototypes to quickly gauge your direction. Finally, you'll explore ways to modify this system for use in your own human services training organization.
