Instructional Design

The latest in the nghudson series of toolkits is now available to download from the eCommerce page.

The Instructional Design Toolkit complements the previous two kits in the series in that it deals with the next stage in the curriculum/course design process: Design & Delivery Strategy - Course Modelling - Instructional Design.

I know from over twenty years of experience that it is hard to find templates for very important documents such as Initial Design Concepts and particularly Design Briefs. Yes, if you look very hard in the right places only certain people seem to know, you will find the odd PDF file here and there but they vary widely in both suitability and quality. That is why I have produced the tools in this toolkit series, so that designers, in particular those involved in legal education, have ready-made, suitable and comprehensive templates with which to work.

This toolkit comprises the following documents that can be adapted to suit individual organisations or institutions:

  • Initial Design Concept Template
  • Design Brief Template
  • Bloom’s Taxonomy Action Verbs Table
  • Session Description Template
  • Task Template
  • Facilitation Guidance Template

Each of the templates has both Word and PDF versions. Guidance is given both on the instructional design process and the information required in order to complete fully working documents, saving you tremendous amounts of time and effort.

As with all the toolkits in this series, they have been designed to be self-contained, however, nghudson can provide workshops and support to help design teams get the most out of their use. Simply contact me if you'd like details.
