Learning Methodologies

Our instructional design and learning design process includes working with clients to determine key business objectives that inform the end goal of learning programs. We explore how the business objective impacts current skills, knowledge and behaviours and then create a learning experience to enable learners to reach the desired business goal.

IDA uses a variety of adult learning theories in learning design. Our approach is driven by the concept of inquiry-based Discovery Learning, which requires learners to make connections to previous knowledge, bring their own questions to learning, investigate and critically reflect on concepts and design ways to try out their ideas.

To maximize learner engagement and transfer of learning, we design programs that offer both formal and informal learning opportunities.

Examples of methodologies and activities that IDA uses in its learning design include:

  • Appreciative Inquiry (strengths-based approach)
  • Storytelling
  • Debate
  • Problem Based Learning (PBL)
  • Critical Reflection
  • Shared Learning
  • Metaphors/Analogies
  • Video
  • Visualisation
  • Action Planning
  • Case Studies
  • Critical Incident Analysis
  • Acronyms
  • Skills Practice
  • Simulation
