Source Material Review: Our team will conduct an in-depth review of all of your teaching content.
Learner Profiles: We'll create a snapshot of your target learners by understanding their context, goals, and hurdles.
Blueprint: We'll write a guide that articulates the specific learning outcomes and delivery method for each course or a collection of courses.
Content Strategy: With a plan in place, we'll create a list of content our teams will need to create or modify for your new courses.
When Princeton Theological Seminary approached us about reimagining their Certificate in Theology & Ministry, we started with the people who matter most: learners.
Over the course of a day and a half, we discovered exactly who Princeton was trying to teach and how we could reach them best. Through Learner Profiles, we catalogued the particular challenges that face their distance learning students. Then we used the Blueprint exercise to map a plan for a more modular, less lecture focused program design.
The result was a brand new kind of online course for Princeton. Instead of listening to hour-long lectures, learners dipped in and out of lecture segments, active readings, and discussions with classmates.
This "lean-forward" approach kept remote learners always on the edge of their seats.
