Unraveling the Role of Agile In Instructional Design
Over the years, the ever-changing enterprise arena has witnessed exhilarating innovations in the technology landscape. Apart from improvements in data standards and digitalization, the industry also saw advancements in management thinking and human-centered approaches such as design thinking. Today, global businesses and their learning and development teams are venturing into new ways of working, blending innovative ideas and technologies.
Agile Project Management
The Agile Manifesto launched was launched two decades ago marking the beginning of Agile in the software development industry. The product uncovered better ways of developing software by creating it and helping others build it. It also suggested software developers value four precise principals to achieve their goals—focusing on individuals and interactions, working software, customer collaboration and responding to change. After all these years of research and development, the Agile project management was introduced as an iterative, incremental approach aimed to guide the design and build of projects in a highly interactive and flexible manner. Agile also focuses on increasing consumer value and promoting high team engagement.
Agile and Instructional Design
It was only a matter of time that L&D teams would eventually adopt Agile considering its many benefits. Also, the design-build aspect of the software design and development were connected to that of ID, making the development of e-learning experiences or other digital experiences stronger. Though Agile is also different from few specific Instructional Design techniques, it is independent of the learning medium and can be applied to online learning, micro-learning, instructor-led, performance support, blended learning, virtual reality training, or any other projects that required a social framework for an informal medium of learning.
