What People Say About Us

IDA consistently exceeds our expectations. Their learner-focused approach have turned made programs fun and effective! We’ve received outstanding feedback from the participants. Thanks IDA!


I’m so happy to have found Instructional Design Australia to design and develop our bespoke learning program. We wanted to create a program consisting of online learning, face-to-face workshops and on-the-job training. IDA aced it! We’re extremely happy with the end product.


IDA was a pleasure to work with – excellent communication, great attention to detail, fantastic ideas for hands-on engaging learning whilst meeting our tight deadlines. We are looking forward to working with IDA on future projects.


We appreciate IDA’s ability to create engaging and interactive eLearning programs with tight turn arounds. I always feel relaxed with IDA on board, knowing our program’s in good hands.


This ADDIE Toolkit has been a lifesaver! After having worked as a Lead Instructional Designer in a large organisation for many years, I decided to go out on my own. I was daunted by the fact that I didn’t have my own templates, however this toolkit gave me all that I needed. I changed the logos, then I was ready for business!


I recommend the ADDIE Toolkit to any Instructional Designer that is looking for elegant and easy to use templates. I have received many complements from my clients since purchasing the Toolkit.


I was fresh out of completing a Master of Adult and Vocational Education when I got a job as a company’s first in-house Instructional Designer. Having little to no templates to work from, the ADDIE Toolkit was a godsend. The templates and guides within the Toolkit are comprehensive, yet concise. They guide you through the learning design process step by step – perfect for someone with limited experience in the L&D industry. I highly recommend this Toolkit for anyone starting out in Instructional Design.

Our Approach to Effective Learning Design

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
