The instructional design ADDIE (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, Evaluate) model may be utilized to provide the necessary structure for designing a curriculum. During the analysis stage, data is gathered from a needs assessment and any other relevant information that allows the designer to determine needs, learning gaps, and problem identification. The analyze step allows us to gain a deeper understanding of the learners, the constraints learners are facing, and the learning needs of the target audience. Once the analysis is complete, the design process begins by deciding how the information will be learned during the course/training. This stage includes the creation of goals that state the overall learning outcome and the objectives that break down the learning into smaller and more manageable learning steps. During this stage, instruction plans, identification of resources, and the development of assessment material will be specified, creating an instructional strategy. The instructional design strategy is then used to author and produce learning materials in the development stage. The course/training designer may work with the subject matter experts, the instructional designer, and other team members to create the lecture material, activities, assessments, training facilitation guide, and other essential materials. Once the development process has been completed, teachers/trainers will implement the curriculum and collect evaluations from the participant. The last step in ADDIE has two phases- formative and summative evaluation. Due to the iterative process of ADDIE, the formative evaluation phase takes place after each stage and cumulates with the summative evaluation after the implantation phase is complete. During the summative phase, assessment data, course and instructor evaluations, outcome data, and other miscellaneous data will be collected in order to revise the course/training for future sessions.
