Agile Learning Design

A comprehensive online course on Agile learning and its instructional design methodologies for L&D teams

Starting on 30 August 2020
USD 49

About the course: 

In developing training programmes for the organisation, L&D teams have traditionally followed a waterfall model whereby they move from stages of requirements and design to implementation and maintenance. Training developers and instructional designers have also conventionally followed the ADDIE (analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation) model in developing training courses, which means that training programmes and courses usually need to be fully developed before stakeholders get to try things out. 

But with the rise of technology and the rapid pace in which industry changes are happening, organisations are increasingly feeling the pressure to adapt to constant change and developments - and there’s no way the organisations can adapt quickly if the employees do not keep up and learn at a faster pace.   

To support learning agility, organisations need to foster an agile learning culture, and L&D teams need to find new ways of training design to keep up with the demands for speed and flexibility. 

During this course you will learn:  

  • What is Agile learning and how it achieves better results than traditional L&D. 
  • Contributors to Agile learning such as micro-learning, collaborative learning and mobile learning. 
  • Applying Agile “sprint” principles to L&D to achieve greater speed and flexibility in developing training content and programmes. 
  • How various Agile learning design approaches compare with the traditional ADDIE instructional design model. 

Sign up for this online course if you want to:

  • Learn what is agile learning and why it is important in the current business climate. 
  • Foster an agile learning culture in your organisation. 
  • Learn the essential building blocks of Agile learning. 
  • Understand Agile learning instructional design.
