   Leave ADDIE: An Action Plan To Harness Agile-based SAM

[On-Demand] Online Course 

Two 75-Minute Sessions | $59.95  


We all want an efficient and more collaborative development model—a model that not only fosters creativity and focuses on learner performance, but that is practical too.

The goal of this online course is to help learning design and development professionals harness and apply some of the agile aspects of SAM in their current learning development pross.

Attendees will:

  • Gain an understanding of what it really means to execute agile instructional design with the Successive Approximation Model (SAM), the roadblocks it addresses such as managing SMEs, timelines, and budgets, and the power of collaboration and iterative development.
  • Evaluate your ID process and create an implementation plan for anchoring your existing development process with successful SAM moments.
  • Walk away with an actionable plan to implement these agile moments as well as measure them.

Offline Self-Directed Activity:

After you attend the first 75-minute on-demand course, please take a few minutes to complete the self-directed offline activity. This activity is self-directed and is intended to help you think through your current development process, to identify steps in your process where you can integrate SAM activities, and to create success criteria for each SAM integration activity.

Once the activity is completed watch the second 75-minute on-demand course that discusses the activity where the facilitator reviews several individuals’ assignments that were completed during the live class and provides feedback.


In this online course you will learn:

  • Why an agile process requires a performance-based design approach
  • What it means to execute agile instructional design with SAM
  • The power of Iterations & Collaboration
  • How to anchor your process with successful moments of SAM
  • How to create an action plan to implement and anchor your existing ID process with identified SAM moments.
