Phase 3: Design Curriculum

We follow an outcomes-based approach to training with a strong focus on learning by doing with the emphasis on the results of learning (outcomes).

Training course designs are aligned with the skills paths and requirements defined in Phase 2.

 

 

 

When designing our training initiatives we have to design for the type of training engagement required by the delegate. That is why we are using the Dreyfus Five-Stage model.

 

The Dreyfus five-Stage model defines the mental activities involved in direct skill acquisition and requires students to have access to context-free instruction, but also being able to interact with a mentor and the building of a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate the higher level mastery of a skill.

Micro-learning Storyboard Template

Micro-learning gives students and employees the ability to gather information in “bite-sized” forms, which can help them to absorb it much more effectively. It is an ideal solution for those who may not have the time to devote to a lengthy course, given that you can learn at your own pace and avoid the risk of becoming overwhelmed by too much data at once.

Micro-learning can be carried out in a variety of ways. Emails, online posts, short multimedia videos, and even short chat sessions can give e-learning students the small building blocks that are necessary for them to achieve their educational goals and broaden their overall knowledge base.

With this in mind, we created a template that captures the learning experience for a single outcome on a page. 

Packaging Mirco-learning into a Training Course

Micro-learning units are grouped into Lessons with each lesson linked to a summative assessment.

Lessons, in turn, are grouped into Modules that cover a specific topic and the modules are then linked together to create a Training Course.
