This instructional designer position will support the development of clinical learning solutions. As a member of the Innovative Learning Team, the instructional designer will employ various forms of gap analysis to identify optimal and actual learner and performance needs. The instructional designer will be able to design, develop, and assess a variety of instructional and performance interventions with emphasis on mobile learning, compressed design, and just-in-time technologies. The designer will work within a framework of Banners Vision, Mission, and Values, with a focus on learning that transfers effectively from the instructional experience and environment to bottom-line results within the Banner Health organization.
Conducts front end analysis using a variety of processes, including learner analysis, task analysis, content analysis, and context analysis, when needed. Based on the data they collect, or are given, the ID will identify gaps between what the learners should know versus what they do know. Because the ID will work with multiple clinical service lines within the Banner Health organization, they must develop an understanding of each service lines unique needs. Strong communication, interviewing, and social skills will be required to effectively work with content experts (Clinical Educators, Physicians, and Nurses) and peers when identifying these gaps.
Identifies instructional and performance interventions based on the results of task analysis and other relevant extant data. These interventions fall into knowledge, attitudes or skills categories and are driven by the identification of clear learning and performance goals and objectives. The ID uses learning theory to create rich environments for active learning, integrating a number of active learning strategies and higher order thinking activities. A knowledge of cognitive load theory, constructivist theory, social learning theory, and Mayers multimedia theory is critical. Understanding expert/novice differences and how to sequence and chunk content to move a learner towards the learning and performance goals is equally important. The ID will work with subject matter experts to obtain content for developing relevant case studies, exercises, and interactive strategies, incorporating high-impact, digestible, just in time education where appropriate. The ID will identify opportunities to use technology to improve learning transfer. The ability to align objectives, strategies and assessments is critically important.
Creates design documents and storyboards that quickly convey the instruction or performance intervention needed. This design document will be shared with stakeholders for approval and include risk identification and mitigation strategies. When approved, the ID will develop instructional materials (using authoring tools and basic graphic design software) that demonstrate an understanding of visual literacy and message design. Throughout the development process the ID will need to effectively communicate and work with team members in remote locations. When necessary, the ID will work with and improve existing instructional materials (building in adaptive options and interactive learning experiences). A basic knowledge of video production and editing, as well as ADA compliance is required. The ID will demonstrate excellent design skills across learning environments including: face to face and virtual settings (synchronous and asynchronous).
Assesses learning transfer in both the immediate learning environment and later in the performance context. They will design and develop receptive, directive, exploratory, and guided discovery environments when appropriate, and will be able to design and interpret assessments of both learning and the learning experience and environment. The ID will be able integrate assessment data from both learners and into design and redesign of performance and learning materials.
