Show Notes

This episode is part of the Learning Uncut Disruption series.  This pop-up daily series aims to equip learning professionals with practical guidance and tips to get started or scale up with practices needed as part of their organisational response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

One of Megan Torrance’s areas of expertise is on the use of Agile work methodology for instructional design projects.  The approach she has adapted is called Lot Like Agile Management Approach (LLAMA).  In the spirit of the Disruption series Megan identifies a core set of steps you could start using right now to speed up your instructional design projects and still get out effective solutions. The key is to create a Minimum Viable Product, release it for testing, get feedback and then iterate – in a series of short cycles.
