Performance-based Instructional Design:

This method of instructional design concerns itself with what the student can perform or do because of participating in the training. The student’s performance (the skill that can be performed) is purposely planned from the very beginning to the very end of the instruction: from analysis to the evaluation phase of instructional design.

  • A well-defined, efficient Instructional Design and Development process guides each stage of my work.

  • Instructional /educational integrity is in all the programs and materials I design and develop.

  • References verify my ability to grasp complex and difficult subject matter quickly and with accuracy.

  • Communication with clients is respectful and focused on designing the best product within the defined time frame.

  • Innovative practice comes out of  the instructional design process.

  • Desired performance comes from ample opportunity for the trainee to practice the new skill(s).  Corrective and cognitive feedback is designed into  the training  material, as well as a definintion of how a supevisor will  actually encourage and support the trainees in implementing the new skill(s) in their work.

  • By knowing how complex cogntive skills are learned, the instructional designer can design instruction that promotes the accurate performance of skills and the application of specific problem solving methods for your unique discipline.

  • Evaluation based on the learning objectives, which are clearly defined from the beginning of the training, insures practical content and accurate measurement.

  • Designs for blended learning within computer-based learning is current best practice. (Within computer-based learning, using demonstrations and simulations can increase the student's

  • interaction with the material and the student's performance.)

    Labor rate is competitive, based on the complexity of the learning objectives and the time requirements to produce a finished project.

    Computer based demonstrations and simulations is part of my skill set.
