Learn how to design an effective and exciting class. The first part introduces the standard instructional design model called the ADDIE model. It also includes a working knowledge of relevant learning theories. Then there is an examination of the seven basic elements of instructional design—how to build a lesson plan.

Note: While this last section may seem trivial, it’s not. When it comes to learning, fun matters. The more enjoyable the learning session is, the more likely participants will be engaged. The more engaged they are, the more they’ll learn, retain and apply!
