Results-Oriented Instructional Design

CTP applies Instructional Design to create the courses organizations need to build skills and practical knowledge.

CTP understands how adults absorb and retain information. Using a mix of activities, media, and simulations, CTP’s instructional designers maximize results by designing training experiences that allow students to explore instructional material.  Our instructional designers can deliver high-impact training, because of our specialized work blending cognitive design principles with real-world requirements.

  • Clear Learning Objectives

  • Story and Structure

  • Games and Simulations

Customized Professional Training for Every Organization

The instructional design experts at CTP look for opportunities to present practical key concepts that can be integrated into professional life and existing workflows.  Our instructional designers are adept at designing any size customized training.  Our past clients include the Departments of State, Defense, Commerce, Energy, Treasury, as well as the  Environmental Protection Agency and United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

CTP is known for its expert use of best practices of Instructional System Design (ISD) for both classroom and web-based training materials. At the heart of our ISD approach is the ADDIE principle, a multi-step process that ensures our curricula and methods are ideal for transferring the desired knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) to the target audience. This ISD methodology pays particular attention to the needs of the adult learner, using multi- modal deliveries to maintain interest, increase attention, and boost retention. Courses have clear goals and objectives for both the trainers and the trainees, and each module and practical exercise builds on and complements prior components.

Model Country Plan — Designing Training for National Results

Designing training that is suitable for each national audience is an important part of building strategic capacity.  CTP applies the principles in the ADDIE model to design courses that achieve specific measurable learning objectives of the MCP.  CTP Instructional Designers explore the nuances of each audience segment to understand where training gaps exist, prioritize needs, and effectively design course materials.

Clear Learning Objectives

We create high-performance courses that deliver real-world results.  Our process begins with a structured Front-End Analysis to identify critical learning objectives for the project considering factors such as student profiles, technological constraints, and organizational goals.  Our instructional design team next builds an eLearning blueprint for the course to establish a framework that:

  • Formulates the learning objectives
  • Sequences instructional topics
  • Creates engaging interactions

Adult Learning by Design

From development through delivery, CTP optimizes our instructional materials to engage learners using interactive activities, peer learning, and guided exploration.  Our ISDs are skilled at executing the ADDIE model—Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation—to take the guesswork out of course creation.

This best-practice approach maximizes the learning potential for each student that participates in a CTP-designed course.  We use interactivity and experiential learning methods to build engagement and increase retention.  Each course curriculum that we build is designed to achieve organizational learning objectives and produce measurable results.  Additionally, CTP identifies the appropriate delivery methods for training content, which can include a mix of text, graphics, video, and other interactive needs.
