Agile Learning Design: 

A Practical Perspective

Friday, March 18, 2016

Agile methodologies have been used in software development for years. Now learning designers are seeing its benefits for our field. Agile development values working solutions over comprehensive documentation and responding to change over following a plan. Stop trying to hold stakeholders and SMEs to the plan, and instead learn how to create a flexible structure within which you can respond quickly to changing requirements.

After attending this session, you'll be able to:

  • Describe the basic tenets of agile development.
  • Identify potential challenges to agile development in instructional design.
  • Describe how agile projects have just as sound instructional design methodologies as traditional ADDIE methods.
  • Implement at least 2 practical suggestions to be more agile in your instructional design.
