Many a times, an educator/trainer becomes so by the virtue of his or her knowledge about the subject. However, the effectiveness of the training delivered cannot be ensured simply by knowing the subject or being an expert on it. The effectiveness of the training or the content - be it in terms of learning or branding - is dependent on how well it is structured, presented and communicated. This in turn requires that the educator/trainer not only presents the accurate content but also engages the learner.

Instructional Design is what enables a teacher/educator/trainer/ to achieve all this. It is a hitherto unrealized skill in the content writers' universe. We seek to evangelize Instructional Design as a must have skill for content writers, trainers and learning consultants. This webinar focuses on highlighting what is Instructional Design and why trainers need to learn it. The course also covers common misconceptions about Instructional Design especially with respect to content writing, and the difference between writing content and creating learning material.

About the Presenter:
V Anand is a learning professional with over 20 years of experience. He has worked in learning
companies like NIIT, eMind, Knowledge Platform, LIQVID and Max Life Insurance in various roles as a
trainer, facilitator, supervisor and expert adviser. He has created and managed content for all types of
subjects and topics, with a special emphasis on Instructional Design, Content and Presentation,
Compliance and Information Technology.
Anand has trained well over 1,000 people in his entire career span and has been involved in instructional
design work throughout his career. He has built up, supervised and mentored ID teams, set up ID and
development standards, as well as written and developed courses himself.
He started his career as a programmer and understands technology which gives him an edge in the elearning
domain. Having executed large projects, he uses Change Management as the guiding principle,
which is usually a deciding factor in the success of most learning initiatives. In addition, his content
development experience can be leveraged in case the client wishes to go the continuous learning route
(highly recommended), where after the training, ongoing engagement and connection can continue
either face-to-face or over social media / networking groups; a model which Anand has successfully tried
and tested at both Knowledge Platform and at Max Life Insurance. His ID skills, experience as a trainer
and ability to manage stakeholders (internal and external) add to his expertise.
Though he works on all facets of instructional design, the closest to his heart is designing learning
