Instructional Design Special Interest Group

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Arizona

Virtual Session

During the September Instructional Design SIG, we'll help to guide an interactive conversation around how you make the most out of your micro-learning! 

According to ATD and Jan Viviani, microlearning is beneficial to keeping learners’ attention because it activates individuals’ working memory capacity by delivering information in smaller, easier-to-digest bursts.

Our conversation may focus around questions like—

  • Where do you use true microlearning in your design today?
  • How do you identify when microlearning will be a good fit for learning situation?  When is it not helpful?
  • What are your own time expectations to keep it micro?  Why?
  • How do you really focus the content to keep it micro?
  • Where can you find resources to help you?
  • How do you deploy your microlearning?  Phone?  LMS?  Video?  Audio?
  • How do you measure the effectiveness of your microlearning projects?
  • What examples would you like to share?
  • Where do you need the support or ideas from your peers?
  • And more related ideas!

  • What is the group?

In our Instructional Design Special Interest Group, we will focus on the Instructional Design capability of ATD's Talent Development Capability Model™.  Each session will have a focused topic, but we welcome a diverse and organic discussion that may lead to other brilliant ideas.  The ATD VOS Instructional Design SIG will meet every other month through 2022.

Who can attend?

All learning, development, and talent professionals are welcome to join--whether you're just starting to develop your first official course or you're a seasoned expert who uses SAM.

How does ATD define 'instructional design?'

Instructional design is an essential element of an effective learning effort. The creation of learning experiences and materials is what results in the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills. Talent development professionals follow a system of assessing needs, designing a process, developing materials, and evaluating effectiveness. Instructional design requires the analysis and selection of the most appropriate strategies, methodologies, and technologies to maximize the learning experience and knowledge transfer.
