The impact of COVID-19 has resulted in an unprecedented shift to online or virtual/hybrid learning and a growth in the demand for instructional design skills. Instructional designers design learning journeys that guide the learner though the acquisition and development of knowledge and skills to meet learning and performance outcomes. After attending the Instructional Design course with PD Training you’ll have the skills and confidence to design engaging learning that is built on a solid understanding of adult learning, neuroscience and instructional design principles.
The course, which follows the ADDIE instructional design process, will take you through the process of articulating the learning outcomes and working backwards from there to identify knowledge, skills and attitudes to achieve those outcomes and the content and activities that will develop them. You’ll learn how to create a learning journey blueprint, how to chunk and sequence content and how to design learning activities using a variety of training aids. You’ll also learn about the important of evaluating training to ensure its design is fit for purpose.
These fun, high-energy training courses are delivered by experienced training professionals throughout Australia, including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.

After Completing This Course Participants Will Have Learned to:
"Training very well tailored to my needs. Joseph was very knowledgeable ,informative, interesting and fun. Creating a great learning atmosphere .As a result of the training I feel more confident in presenting and transfer knowledge to the participants."
"Joseph was amazing ! The delivery of content was the best I've ever been to. The content was delivered in a simple way, yet it was so powerful and made sense. We are already looking into doing another training day with Joseph in the new year :)"

"What i really took from this course is the communication styles and approaches which Josh took us through, and though they can be categorized as 'trainer training' i think we will all use them in a broader sense, when we are running brainstorms, selling in new ideas to clients and internal teams."
"Josh was an amazing trainer. He got the content across in really engaging ways, everyone was talking about it afterwards! Couldn't recommend it more. Made me realise how relevant it was to not just how to train but life in general."
"Derrick was a fantastic, well rounded trainer and role model. Not only did Derrick, keep us energized, enthused, and engaged for three days, he believed in us completing and growing as Trainers. I'm a 24 year old, Sales Manager from SponsoredlinX, who was underdeveloped and lacking in quiet a few key strategy's and techniques on how to facilitate training in such a high paced environment, with an array of participants. Derrick stayed patient, friendly and dedicated molding and manipulating the training around my specific needs as a Sales Trainer selling Google. Derrick was very caring and considerate when I had time restraints and prior commitments. In saying this, all content was completed. He is fantastic at time management focus. Not only did I learn what drives me in a work environment, but also my peers, students and superiors. This information will be passed through the whole sales team to create a HEALTHIER/more SUSTAINABLE workplace. Derrick has opened my eyes to a lot in the field that I was other-wise blinded to. He is not only a fantastic trainer with results and curriculum, he is an inspiration to us all in the industry, taking a basic sales trainer, and transforming him into a polished, organised, respected manager. Please pass on these messages to Derrick, he's a "bloody ripper of a role model. The Things I will be taking away from the course - Train the Trainer. *Profiling - Learning how to understand your own drivers, so you can openly communicate with others who share different or the same learning styles. *Presentation skills...ALWAYS BEING PREPARED, AND HAVING A BACK UP *Time management - Condensing down your training to ensure maximum engagement from your audience. *How to read and understand body language, voice perceptions/tonality's, how to talk and be in control and show assertiveness through your training presentation. *Maximizing training, with well-planned and progressive material. - Always working towards a goal, and communicating effective messages. *The most important thing I learnt however was respect for my fellow trainer. (what a hard job with me and Denesh, and all those questions and problems that needed answering). -I am sure he took as much away from the training as I did. I've grabbed Derricks business card and will be referring him on to other business's and defiantly my own for future training with my fellow workers. He would surely be able to continue and express some great patterns through the large team.
"I learned so much. The trainer was very knowledgeable and always had a solution to my questions. I would recommend this course and this specific trainer to anybody. Very worthwhile. I have not had any training like this it was very relevant and applicable to my role that have tried to do before this without any knowledge. This course was very helpful and taught me a lot of skills I have not had or haven't even thought about."
"The training gave me tools to be able to use my intuitive approach to teaching others more effectively. Being aware of adult leaning styles, individual motivation for training as well as my own personality profile was helpful."
-Children's Protection Society
"I find Siobahn to be an excellent and knowledgeable trainer. She was able to actively engage us and listened to what we thought our weaknesses were and would then throw curveballs at us in these areas to help us practice."
"Joseph was a one of the best trainers I've encountered. Inclusive and sensitive to everyone's needs and different learning styles. He delivered the course curriculum succinctly and eloquently while encouraging discussion and participation. Some very good hands-on tips and tools outside of the course were also provided."
"I really enjoyed the course. I will definitely be looking back to the manual when preparing, planning and facilitating future training sessions. Troy was very likeable, lively and full of energy. Thanks for materials, the sessions were great!"

In the era of lifelong learning, instructional designers add value to the learning process in designing learning that is respectful of the learner, that values the time and effort of the learner and optimises the learning experience.
In this one day course, which follows the ADDIE instructional design model, you’ll learn about the principles of good instructional design and how to apply them to any learning situation be it online, virtual, hybrid, blended or in-person.

Design with the Brain in Mind
Blueprinting and Storyboarding

Evaluating the Effectiveness of Instructional Design
When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
