Step 1. What should my learners achieve?
What should the learner know or do after this specific training? That decides the topics you will discuss in your training.
Step 2. How should I assess the different topics?
You’ll have to assess the newly acquired knowledge or skills before you can conclude that your training worked.
Step 3. What structure should I apply?
Think back on your learning goals, topics and assessment: is there a certain structure that you can apply to the course?
Step 4. Which learning activities would fit best?
The next step is all about designing which learning activity you want to use per topic or learning goal.
Step 5. Test your blueprint.
The basis for your course is ready. You’ve done most of the thinking, now it’s time to put it into practice.
Step 6. Design the content.
After you have fine-tuned your blueprint based on the feedback that people gave you in step 5, it’s time to start designing and developing your content.
Step 7. Start building!
Build the designed and developed learning activities in your learning system, make a scenario for your face-to-face session.
Step 8. Test and pilot.
No learning programme has been spot on from the get-go. Everything needs some fine-tuning based on user feedback.
Step 9. Let’s go live!
You have learning goals, a structure, learning activities (off- and online), searched and created the right content and piloted. Let’s go live.
