"This class helped me take a meh curriculum and transform it into a curricula that will motivate action in my target audience."
JULIA LEAVITT, SHERWOOD TRUST
You want to move people to action. You want them to change how they do things so they achieve better results. Maybe you want board members to know how to advocate for their mission, or you want to help staff members fulfill their goals around fundraising or volunteer recruitment. Whatever they need to be able to do, you need to design effective lessons, tools, and experiences. They don’t have time to waste on learning that doesn’t make a difference.
Design for Results is designed for learning leaders, program directors, consultants, and trainers working in the social sector. Through a cohort model limited to 15 people, it leads you through a well-tested design process that yields a ready-to-use curriculum (or whatever collection of lessons, tools, and experiences you need to achieve your goals).
This is a series of work sessions in which you will learn the process and implement it in the company of peers. You will work outside of our live sessions to get ready and to apply the process to a specific topic of your choosing. You should come to this series with an idea for a curriculum or an existing curriculum* that you want to improve. You will complete this series with a draft curriculum ready to implement this spring
* Don’t let the word "curriculum" limit you! A curriculum is a body of knowledge to be transmitted. It is a set of tools (white papers, instructions, checklists, videos, etc.) that support an end result. What you produce through this series may be a curriculum that you deliver through trainings. It could also be a set of tools, on demand videos, and checklists that help people do something outside of a training scenario.
$375, which includes:
You will receive a workbook and have access to session recordings for up to 6 months.
“This curriculum development class inspired me to jettison extraneous information and spend more time expressing my own story and values. The result is a more compelling, actionable experience for my participants.”
