Instructional Design

Are Your Learning Solutions Falling Short?
In the rapidly evolving landscape of education and training, it's all too common for well-intentioned learning solutions to miss the mark. Despite investments in developing resources and making an effort to develop training, these solutions often fall short of achieving the desired outcomes.

Common scenarios where learning solutions can miss their mark

Disengaged Learners

Engaging learners effectively is crucial, but many materials fall short. Dull content or uninspiring presentations leave learners confused and disinterested. When goals lack clarity and real-life relevance, knowledge retention falters, hindering desired outcomes.

Mismatched Learning Objectives

When the learning objectives are misaligned with the learners' needs or the organization's goals, the entire learning experience becomes disjointed. This misalignment often results in a lack of relevance or real-world or on the job applicability, leading to frustration and a sense of wasted time.

Inadequate Assessment Methods

Effective learning solutions require robust assessment mechanisms. Without them, accurately gauging understanding, competency, and progress becomes challenging. A lack of assessments and real-life practice hinders identifying areas needing improvement or reinforcement.
At Virtual Violet Instructional Design, we understand these challenges intimately. Our mission is to tackle these issues head-on by crafting learning solutions that balance theory versus practice and are engaging, and relevant to specific competency and skills development. By addressing these pitfalls, we ensure that our clients' educational and training efforts yield the desired learning outcomes and drive integration of new skills, attitudes, and behaviors.
