    Be a BADDIE: The Basics of Backward Design

    Backward design (also known as Understanding by Design) is a method for creating learning by starting first by determining what you want participants to walk away with AND how you’ll know they’re walking away with it. Only after these are clearly defined does the designer consider content and delivery method.

    If you have a strong affinity for another model of instructional design, don’t worry – backward design is a supplement to these rather than a replacement. And if you’re not familiar with ANY instructional design models, don’t worry about that either! Backward design is easy to understand and a great place to start. 

    In this session, we’ll discuss the basics of backward design and look at a few real-life examples. You’ll have the opportunity to practice using backward design, and you’ll leave with a template that you can use when you’re back on the job.

    Workshop Learning Objectives

     After today's session, you will be able to:

    • Create the framework for a learning event using backward design.
    • Identify circumstances where backward design may be relevant for you
