But, I’m Not an Instructional Designer! Toolkit

 But, I’m Not an Instructional Designer! Toolkit

This toolkit will give you the necessary resources and templates to create effective training without instructional designers. Ideally, learning events will have an instructional designer (ID) and a subject matter expert (SME) who work as a team. IDs are in short supply within many organizations. For this reason, I created this toolkit to assist SMEs with creating effective learning events when IDs are not available.

    “I personally can vouch that Concerning Learning, LLC is something that everyone who is involved in the “training” arena should definitely receive direction from.
    There are levels to training & it’s important to make sure all levels are met for the biggest impact.

    So much clarity and candid feedback came from that conversation…”

  • I worked with Deadra Welcome on the Metro DC Chapter of ASTD Board of Directors, when I served as President-Elect, President, and President-Past. During this time, I learned of Deadra’s exceptional ISD, business, and leadership skills. Over those 3 years Deadra was the Director of Special Interest Groups and Director of Professional Development. She organized the SIG portfolio, led the SIG leaders, coordinated high quality professional development workshops and created a CPLP study group. As a result of her efforts, the chapter was awarded the Chapter Excellence Award in addition to accomplishing 100% passage rate of the Knowledge Exam for members who were actively engaged in the group. Deadra also designed, developed, and managed the Mentoring Partnership Program which participants found to be beneficial. I continue to work with Deadra and see other exemplary aspects of her work including quality products and programs she creates.

  • Mrs. Welcome was instrumental in the success of my recent workshop. Her guidance helped me gain focus. Training Check Up should be a part of your arsenal to ensure sound strategic approaches to any training, development, workshop or presentation. She gives her clients a personal touch and definitely made me feel “Welcome.” I highly recommend her services.
