The

Problem

How would I approach gathering and processing requirements for new learning experiences and development solutions?

The

Outcomes

  • Understand my process for gathering and processing requirements.

  • Understand my process for designing new learning experiences and development solutions.

Analyzing

  • What do the learners need to know? What do they already know? How do they learn best?

  • What do they need to know? What are managers saying about their needs? 

  • How did previous learning segments go? Is there data to analyze in the creation of this new segment?

  • Who are the learners? Where are they learning? How will they be accessing this training? When do they need the information?

  • Is there a knowledge gap we are trying to bridge?

  • Is there a push coming down the pipeline that we need to get in front of?

 

Gathering

Designing and Developing

Meeting the

needs

  • Learning theory is global but the diversity of learners demands differentiation to ensure retention.

  • Stay current with trends in elearning and instructional design; what is the bleeding edge doing?

  • Address the gap in the current learning systems with new tools.

  • Maintain engagement with multiple learning modalities per segment.

  • Examples of learning segments I've created and implemented:

 

Implementing and Evaluating

Learning in

action

  • Provide learning segment to learners.

  • Is an orientation necessary?

  • Is feedback built into the segment or will it need to be provided manually in a timely manner?

  • Do all learners have access to the segment as necessary?

  • Provide resources for any technical difficulties to help eliminate cognitive energy spent on the module itself.

Reflecting

  • Critical to growth and improvement of courses.

  • Were the learners satisfied with their experience?

  • Is feedback built into the segment or will it need to be provided manually?

  • Did learners reach the original outcome?

  • Does the newly acquired knowledge apply to their work?

  • Gather and analyze data to determine if the options used met the learners needs and expectations.

    • Apply data results to the next iteration of the learning segment.​

 

In

Summary

Utilizing the ADDIE model, gathering and processing requirements for new learning solutions and developmental solutions is a matter of synthesizing the expectations of multiple stakeholders.

 

Processing

  • Create learning objectives and outcomes based on learner needs and segment requirements.

  • Determine tools, delivery method, and timeline based on learner needs and requirements.

  • Utilize subject matter experts, colleagues, and data from past segments to assist in designing an aligned course.
