Session Description:

Instructional Design is the process of analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating any instructional experience. A basic tenet of Instructional Design is that training is most effective when it provides learners with a clear statement of what they must be able to do as a result of training and how their performance will be evaluated.
