Introduction to the five-step ADDIE model for instructional design. Create a training program using the provided sample project. The live audience shown on screen will be given a sample project to use as well. This project will be used throughout the rest of this chapter.
- Building a training program is a lot like building a house. If you were going to build a house, you wouldn't just gather some building supplies and start nailing boards together. You would first think about what you want your house to look like, and then you'd create a blueprint that specifies how the house should be built. In much the same way, building a training program by just creating a PowerPoint and thinking of some activities is a recipe for failure. We need to carefully consider our objectives, create a design that will achieve our goals and then put the materials together.
Here's where it helps to have a step by step process. The most popular model for designing training programs is called ADDIE. ADDIE is an acronym that stands for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement and Evaluate. Over the next several videos, I'm going to walk you through each step in the ADDIE model. You'll also get to see participants in a live class use this model to build a short training program. Now if you're going to practice along with us, you'll need a sample project to give you a chance to try it out.
Your challenge is to design a training program that will enable each participant to recall the three types of gaps that training can solve with 100% accuracy. The correct answer, of course, is knowledge, skill and ability. Take a moment to think about how you would develop a training program to accomplish this objective. You can download the sample training project worksheet to review this challenge. I've assigned the same project, plus a few others, to the live class.
The next few videos will walk you through the ADDIE model step by step as they create their training.
