    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Arizona

    Virtual Session

    A needs assessment can help provide the framework for a successful learning session. But, what is necessary to complete a needs assessment and where do we begin.

    Our conversation may focus on:


    • Goals of a needs assessment
    • How have needs changed in a hybrid work environment.
    • Types of workplace needs?
    • And more!

    You can also review this article to get the discussion kick started!

    • What is the group?

    In our Instructional Design Special Interest Group, we will focus on the Instructional Design capability of ATD's Talent Development Capability Model™.  Each session will have a focused topic, but we welcome a diverse and organic discussion that may lead to other brilliant ideas.  The ATD VOS Instructional Design SIG will meet every other month through 2024.

    Who can attend?

    All learning, development, and talent professionals are welcome to join--whether you're just starting to develop your first official course or you're a seasoned expert who uses SAM.

    How does ATD define 'instructional design?'

    Instructional design is an essential element of an effective learning effort. The creation of learning experiences and materials is what results in the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills. Talent development professionals follow a system of assessing needs, designing a process, developing materials, and evaluating effectiveness. Instructional design requires the analysis and selection of the most appropriate strategies, methodologies, and technologies to maximize the learning experience and knowledge transfer.
