Top 3 Instructional Design Strategies to Foster Love for Learning


Think of microlearning as the sweet, little love notes in the world of corporate training. Just like how a thoughtful love note can brighten up your day, microlearning delivers small, focused nuggets of knowledge and skill-building that learners can absorb quickly and easily.

With microlearning, your employees fall in love with the process of learning, just like how you fall in love with the person who sends you those little love notes. The constant and consistent delivery of information helps to keep the flame of their love for learning burning bright.

And just like how you would keep a cherished love note close at hand, your employees can easily access microlearning resources and training whenever they need it. This helps them to immediately apply what they have learned and see the positive results of their efforts. So, this Valentine’s Day, embrace the love of microlearning in your organization. Let it be the sweet, little love notes that bring joy and fulfillment to the learning experience of your employees. And watch as their love for learning continues to grow and flourish.

Just like how love can bring out the best in us, gamification can help employees to tap into their creative and competitive sides, and provide a fresh and exciting way to learn and grow. When you talk to the person you love, you can spend hours without getting distracted, tired, or bored. That’s what gamification does in corporate training. It helps employees learn new things without stressing them out or dozing them off.

It leverages gamified elements to non-game situations, thereby making the learning experience more exciting and enjoyable. From points to badges to leaderboards, the gamified elements create a sense of excitement and motivation that inspires learners to fall in love with the learning process.

Therefore, gamification is like a romantic and playful adventure, where the thrill of getting to know someone you admire and the excitement of winning is at the heart of the experience. It’s a way for employees to explore their potential, build their skills and knowledge, and feel a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.

Scenario-based Learning

Imagine getting down on one knee and asking your partner, “ Hey, Will you be my Valentine?” You’re nervous, but you also know that with the right preparation and planning, you’ll be able to make a compelling case for why you two belong together. Similarly, scenario-based learning in corporate training, places employees in real-life situations. Such interactive and immersive scenarios give learners the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge to solve problems and make decisions.

That said, scenario-based learning facilitates a hands-on, practical learning experience that boosts active learning among the employees. It helps the learners to engage and participate in the learning process, thereby leading to an everlasting bond between the scenario-based learning approach and the effective training outcome. Whether they’re navigating complex challenges, making critical decisions, or solving real-world problems, scenario-based learning provides a relevant and interactive platform for learning and growth.

Wrapping It Up!

To say the least, corporate training and learning can be a beautiful and enriching experience when approached with creativity, passion, and a touch of effective instructional design strategies. Whether it’s through microlearning, gamified learning, or scenario-based learning, you have the opportunity to inspire and engage your employees, and make them fall head over heels with the continuous journey of learning and upskilling themselves and make a positive impact in their work and personal lives.

So, this Valentine’s Day, let’s celebrate the symphony of corporate training and learning, where employees are the musicians and the knowledge they acquire is the music they play. After all, who doesn’t love to learn, grow, and thrive in a supportive and engaging environment? And just like how you want your partner to stick through thick and thin, the instructional design strategies in this webinar recording ensure learning that is meant to stay! Check them out now!
