Learning “How To” Use The Facilitated Group Process in Instructional Systems Design and in Instructional Design

Good Design is Informed by Good Analysis data – that’s Accurate, Complete, and Appropriate.

I’ve trained ISD Practitioners in my client organizations in my Analysis methods and my CAD and MCD Methods since back in 1983, including people at: Amoco, AT&T, Discover Card, Dow Chemical, EDS, Eli Lilly, Federal Express, General Motors, General Physics, Hewlett Packard, NASCO, NCR, Northern Telecom, Nova, Pacific Gas and Electric, Raytheon, and Siemens Building Technologies/MCC Powers.

Facilitation of Teams – is something I learned to do back in 1979. Here is an article about my experience doing that.

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.
