Agile for Instructional Designers

On time. Within budget. What they need (even if that changes!). These are moving targets, yet you're expected to deliver all three. The software development industry is embracing Agile project management to address these issues, and there is much that learning and development can learn from them. In this one-hour webcast drawing on her new book Agile for Instructional Design, author Megan Torrance will share how these Agile techniques can be applied in an instructional design setting.

Agile provides a framework for adapting to change as it happens and working with the project sponsor to deliver the content learners need the most. But software development projects face different challenges and have different needs than instructional design projects. Learn what you can borrow from this useful mindset and approach—and what you need to shape specifically for an instructional or learning experience type of project.
