Instructional Design

Materials Developed with Industry Standards

When choosing a company to develop a training exercise or learning event, a client is entrusting that company with their potential growth and learning. At Cubic, we take that trust seriously. We use guidelines published by the Association for Talent Development, formerly known as the American Society for Training and Development, methodology when designing instruction for our clients. With a five phase approach, our goal is two-fold: to fully understand our client's unique needs and goals, and to develop a material that maximizes their learning. These five phases include:

  • Analysis: The analysis phase clarifies problems and objectives, and identifies the learning environment as well as the participant's existing knowledge and skills.
  • Design: The design phase determines the best method to achieve the instructional goal. We outline the learning objectives, plan lessons and exercises with the content and supporting materials necessary to achieve those objectives, and determine the best method of assessment to evaluate learning. We are committed to designing material in both a systematic and specific manner, using a logical, orderly method and paying close attention to detail.
  • Development: In the development phase, instructional designers and developers create and assemble the content assets outlined in the design phase. These could include storyboards, graphics, and new or integrated technologies. We also debug and complete a comprehensive review of the project to ensure the best possible learning experience for the participants.  
  • Implementation: In the implementation phase, Cubic oversees all the final tasks necessary for a successful exercise. Whether it is training facilitators to effectively implement the program, ensuring each learner is registered and comfortable with new tools, or double-checking that all required materials are functional and available, we focus on the details so our client can focus on the learning at hand.
  • Evaluation: The evaluation phase uses the developed assessment tools to measure participants' learning and the instruction itself.
