Activity Overview

The manual is titled ‘Learning Design Manual: Designed to Succeed - 20 Things I Know That Help Make Learning Design Initiatives Succeed', and is a downloadable manual providing a series of twenty tips and personal knowledge-nuggets that Dr. Geoff Cox has used for designing learning and training and development programmes for thousands of people from hundreds of organisations, from Global Corporate Organisations and Business Schools, to Not-for-Profit Organisations and Universities. An essential for anyone – new or experienced – who is designing or developing their own learning or training and development programmes for successful and effective learning.

"It’s fair to say that I’ve learned a lot about what gives Learning Design Projects the greatest chance of success. This is what still guides me when it comes to negotiating and setting up new projects; the things that enable me to do what I’m best at - creating learning environments that deliver for my clients. These are the things that, if I’d known them 30 years ago, would have made it easier to avoid the potential pitfalls that exist where organisations contract with designers of learning.

This collection of personal knowledge-nuggets is intended to help anybody who is engaged in putting together Learning Design Initiatives - either as representatives of a contracting organisation, or as a design specialist from an outside supplier."

Dr. Geoff Cox, Design Director

Very intriguing Review by Micah

I just finished reading through the design manual the other day and I am intrigued to see how the content may shape how I build and design future programs! I found Geoff's concept of his role as being more of a "Catalyst-Enabler" very intriguing.
