The 7 Steps Are
- Tentatively Title the Lesson
- Rough out the Learning Objectives
- Define the APPOs
- Define the DEMOs
- Define the INFOs
- Define the OPEN Adds
- Define the CLOSE Adds
Details follow – but first…
Facilitating the Design Team for Lesson Mapping
The Design Team is a subset or the same group facilitated as an Analysis Team in conducting the Group Process for Analysis. Often the effort is a combination of Analysis and Design by a formally chosen/handpicked (by the Project Steering Team) Analysis/Design Team.
The Group Process is my preferred route to project success – as measured by On-the-Job success in improved Performance of New Hires and/or Incumbent Performers. I’ve been using it since 1979. Here are three articles on that:
CAD – Training Mag – 1984 – 6 page PDF – the first publication about Curriculum Architecture Design via a Group Process – published in Training Magazine in September 1984. Original manuscript (30 pages) – How to Build a Training Structure That Won’t Keep Burning Down.
Models and Matrices- NSPI PIJ -1984 – 5 page PDF – the first publication of the performance and enabler analysis methods for ISD, from NSPI’s (ISPI’s) Performance & Instruction Journal, November 1984.
Teaming for T&D GWW 1999 – 5 page PDF – on my story of inadvertently creating a team – out of frustration with too many revision cycles for a video script I was writing – for training development back in 1979 – and liking the approach for using a Group Process to shorten cycle times and improve the quality of the output.
LM: Step 1- Tentatively Title the Lesson
LM: Step 2- Rough Out the Learning Objectives
LM: Step 3- Define the APPOs
LM: Step 4- Define the DEMOs If Needed
LM: Step 5- Define the INFOs
LM: Step 6- Define the OPEN Adds
LM: Step 7- Define the CLOSE Adds
Recycle Through the Steps for Final Clean-Up
Clean up the titles, language, and add the estimated time for each Activity – and then the estimated time for the Lesson, etc.

The devil is in the details. Capture and report out those too!

The PACT Processes for Training/ Learning/ Knowledge Management
PACT is my set of Instructional Systems Design methodologies.
And PACT is a subset of my Performance Improvement methodologies – EPPI – Enterprise Process performance Improvement.
The PACT Processes are 5 Methodology-sets:
Lesson Mapping is a part of MCD/IAD. Not CAD.
