Solve Problems Using Design Thinking
Design thinking is a philosophy and a set of tools to help you solve problems creatively. Design thinking focuses on the human-centered side of creative problem-solving. It looks at all of the creative problem solving through the lens of human-centered design. It’s a human-centered approach to address who are you designing for and identify what their needs are to help you to solve problems.
Here are some resources to help you put "Design Thinking" into practice at your organization:
- Collaboration visualization tools such as Miro: www.miro.com
- Tools for annotating, editing & design such as Sketch: https://sketch.io/
- Podcasts & videocasts for instructional designers such as: Instructional Designers in Offices Drinking Coffee (#IDIODC)
- Heuristic evaluation, which is a usability inspection method. Download the heuristic evaluation template below
How to Train for Scale
When developing training programs, you need to be able to create learning programs that are accessible and scaleable. Your training has to be able to reach and support your diverse learner populations while at the same time engaging those individuals to meet them where they are. Some of the tools you can use in the LMS to address those various learning styles include:
- Software Simulation available in our native content authoring tool: DominKnow
- Hybrid learning
- Blended Learning
- Video conferencing
