This theoretical module comprises twelve online sessions of 90 minutes. In each session, we will introduce you to one aspect of course design. This all begins with a proper understanding of the client’s needs. The sustainability of every training program depends on how well it meets the areas of development for participants and their organizations. Existing competencies must be assessed and development goals should be set within a transparent taxonomy.

In creating an activating training dramaturgy, trainers will depend on several structural elements such as time constraints, logistical challenges or various group sizes. We address each of these factors to minimize surprises and ensure you are prepared for all the standard (and not so standard) situations in which your future training may take place.

On the practical questions of curriculum development, you will learn how to define training goals and put them in a comprehensible matrix. Through all this, we enable you to implement the demanding quality standards approved by the DVWO. Please note that this does not include transfer and evaluation as these are subject of module 5.

Topics discussed:

  • Organizational goals and training goals
  • Structure of the need analysis
  • Identifying competencies
  • Taxonomies in the DVWO model
