Compliance courses can be a thorny problem for instructional designers. No one likes to be told what to do, and that includes learners and instructional designers. So how can you make mandated courses more useful and interesting for everyone?

In "Building Compliance Training That Actually Matters," Travis Waugh encourages instructional designers to reframe their thinking about mandated training. Instead of seeing it as a nuisance, look at it as an opportunity to reach your entire organization with a single message. In this issue of TD at Work, he explains how you can work with subject matter experts (SMEs) to ensure that compliance requirements are met efficiently and effectively and that courses provide information employees can actually use.

In this TD at Work issue, you will find:

  • a discussion of the problems with compliance training

  • an ADDIE-based process for creating effective training

  • talking points for working with SMEs

  • a framework for analyzing compliance needs.
