I like the design/layout of this infographic - clever the way it presents each set of facts on one screen. Also like the way you can tweet some facts. Not so sure about including this fact though - what do you think? Adding pictures of brain scans and mentioning cognitive neuroscience make people more inclined to believe what they are reading

Fiona Quigley's insight:

So much of good ID is about weeding out redundant information and get straight to the key messages that will make an impact. I see a lot of cross over between an experienced ID and a good journalist. What do you think?

Show Your Work; Compliance Training Project

Fiona Quigley's insight:

Designing compliance training almost always focusses on information rather than doing. SMEs rarely provide all the content that is needed to truly help people do useful things like change behaviour or shift attitudes/organisational culture.

 

This narrated ID process from Jane Bozarth focusses on what you CAN do as an ID - go beyond what the SME provides - talk to managers, end users, REAL people. In short get a real insight into the needs and reality of the organisation and don't expect one person - the SME to be able to provide this.

This is the sort of article subject matter experts should read before starting to write content for an elearning resource.

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, March 6, 2013 5:28 AM

From the text:

 

"What can we learn from here?

• In developing interactive stories, create an inventory of data and information. Classify your data accordingly: important, not so important and useless.  Include only the data which are necessary and exclude those which are only ‘ornamentals’.We call this “must learn” versus “learn on need.”

• Blend the data with the narrative through the help of  metaphors and visuals.

• Test the draft presentation with a pilot audience and see if they got your message across."

Why we need instructional design more than ever - Allison Rossett, Professor Emerita of Educational Technology at San Diego State University | Modern Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Instructional design (ID) has taken something of a pounding recently. Some learning and development practitioners consider it too wordy, and not tech-friendly enough. For others it’s too slow.
Fiona Quigley's insight:

If learning doesn't meet students where they are at, it won't take them to where you want them to go.
