Let’s Get Started

To be successful in their training, learners need to frequently and meaningfully engage with the course content. There are many instructional strategies, and it is not always easy for course designers and instructors to find ones that match the content, the classroom limitations, and participants’ learning needs. This online handbook is designed to provide instructors, project managers, subject matter experts, and instructional designers with tools and techniques to help make a course more interactive and engaging. The online handbook provides background information to help users select the most appropriate option. Users will also find instructions and examples to help them replicate the strategy or tool in a course. This online handbook will be easy for you to navigate and use, and enable you to focus in on a few tools to use in the course you are currently developing or teaching, or read every section.
