Design Thinking Meets ADDIE

By  Kathy Glynn, Debra Tolsma

TD at Work Cover

Looking for a fresh way to design your next learning program? Design thinking may be what you need. Design thinking is an approach to innovation that integrates people’s needs with the needs of their organization.

“Design Thinking Meets ADDIE” shows how design thinking transformed one company’s ADDIE-based approach to instructional design. Authors Kathy Glynn and Debra Tolsma explain how design thinking transformed each step of the ADDIE process: analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation.

This issue of TD at Work includes:

  • definitions of design thinking
  • steps for creating stakeholder maps
  • problem-framing guidelines
  • storytelling tips
  • a worksheet for testing assumptions.
