The power of stories for training in your hands


Coming April 2020!

As an Instructional designer, you have a particular advantage in storytelling for training, because you are very good at analysis, design and development. Story Design is a methodology that draws upon sound instructional design. The characters, the conflict the plot lines are all right there in the information you’ve collected for instruction. 

Instructional Story Design empowers you with clear, practical guidance to: 

  • Discover, design and deliver stories that concretely connect to performance objectives. 
  • Analyze your audience for relatable characters and structure an action list for strong conflict. 
  • Storyboard and make your story ideas a reality, whether you need a simple delivery solution or a highly technical one. 

Exercises, job aids, tools and loads of story examples are right there to support you as you implement Story Design principles. No matter what your experience level is as an instructional designer, Story Design is a competency that can be mastered. It can become second nature. With the process of Story Design on your side, you won’t have problems keeping up with the pace of business. You’ll be creating stories at warp speed.
