An Instructional Designer
As an Instructional Designer my passion is the creation of learning experiences and materials in a manner that results in the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills. My work flow follows a system of assessing needs, designing a process, developing materials and evaluating their effectiveness.
As an Instructional designer I have studied the cognitive processes behind learning acquisition in order to help individuals best absorb and retain material. At its core, my instructional design specialty is identifying the most effective materials and methods to help students achieve their learning goals.
Training Needs Analysis
Training needs analysis (TNA) is a process to identify the gap between the actual and the desired knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) in a job. Training needs analysis helps to pinpoint which areas need addressing within your organization. It can also help to identify which employees need training and what kind of training is best suited.
When I do a training needs analysis, I’ll be able to:
- Align with stakeholders to identify and diagnose performance issues
- Understand the goals and challenges stakeholders are facing
- Gain insight into the employee perspective and their training needs
- Discover critical skills and knowledge gaps
- Conduct a gap analysis to identify appropriate training solutions
Scenario-based learning is an interactive instructional strategy that uses real-life situations and narratives to engage learners. A scenario describes a premise, including just enough detail for the learner to react with a “best” decision on how to proceed in that situation. While a traditional knowledge check tests a learner’s memory of a concept (such as recalling or recognizing information), a scenario tests the learner’s ability to apply that concept.
