Visuals from 2016 ATD Presentation, Silver, Gold, and Bronze: How Much Effort Should You Really Invest in an ID Project?

About the session: Although many people blame the ADDIE instructional design process for the slow pace of instructional design (ID) projects, the real issue might be that people are investing more effort than a particular project is worth. Through a series of case activities, this session introduces a three-tiered approach to projects, suggests the level of effort appropriate to each type of project, and translates that into practical action—that is, adjusting the analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation activities to the needs of the project, without sacrificing its quality. This session also provides an opportunity to apply the concepts to your current projects.

Application on the job:

  • Distinguish among different types of projects based on their scope and impact.
  • Describe the appropriate level of effort for different classes of instructional design projects.
  • Adjust analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation efforts to appropriate levels for a given project.
  • Determine how to adjust activities on a current work projects to match its intended scope and impact.
