Day 1

The first day of the workshop will focus on applying key instructional methods to design courses for how people learn. Participants will learn how to develop their ideas using storyboards; how to create, structure and present content in an engaging way; and how to test learners’ knowledge with effective assessments. By the end of the first session, participants will have begun preparing the first draft of their storyboard.
