New advanced instructional design courses coming

By Vince Cyboran, Ed.D.

I am currently in the process of designing two new courses. These courses can be used as electives for the MATD degree and for the graduate credential in Instructional Design. We hope to begin offering these courses during the 2013-2014 academic year. The descriptions are as follows:

Advanced Instructional Design: Technical Skills (TRDV 458): Advanced Instructional Design: Technical Skills focuses on the design and development of training programs and performance support systems for technical skills in the workplace. Students learn to develop training and support materials for five types of technical knowledge: facts, concepts, procedures, processes and principles. These types of technical knowledge apply primarily to Bloom’s Cognitive and Psychomotor Domains, and to Gagné Intellectual Skills and Psychomotor Skills Domains. Examples of technical skills vary from creating a process to close a home loan for a bank (Cognitive Domain)  to creating a workshop to teach CPR (Psychomotor Domain).  The course uses a case-study approach. The final product from the course will be an instructor-led training program module, developed using Clark’s structured methodology.

Prerequisites:  TRDV 400 and TRDV 451

  • Advanced Instructional Design: Soft Skills (TRDV 459): Advanced Instructional Design: Soft Skills focuses on the design and development of training programs for soft skills in the workplace and other types of organizations.  The course examines pertinent theories and models, including Bloom’s Affective Taxonomy, and Gagné Attitudinal Domain, and Social-Emotional Intelligence.  An example of a soft skill would be developing a workshop to foster better wellness activities (better eating, more exercise, etc.) for the employees of an organization. The course uses a case-study approach. The final product from the course will be an instructor-led training program module that fosters participant success in the workplace, but also aligns with non-training interventions, such as coaching and mentoring, in an organization.

Prerequisites:  TRDV 400 and TRDV 451

    I am currently in the MATD program and instructional design courses would be most helpful. We as well as many other organizations now are implementing LMSs and LCMSs and more technical skills would be great additions to the MATD program.
