Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the second edition of the best-selling book that shows how to get instructional design done fast and get it done right! If you need a basic understanding of what instructional design is and a hands-on, to-the-point method of ensuring that the training and performance interventions you put into place meet the needs of your staff and your organization, this book is for you. It offers a no-nonsense walk through all the steps in the instructional design process and each step is explained in language that is conversational and easy to understand. This new edition addresses such topics as learning analysis, return on investment, and designing asynchronous and synchronous e-learning, as well as a wealth of illustrative examples of storyboards and professional commentary and case studies from professionals in the field.

"The chapter titled 'Asynchronous E-Learning Design' is worth the price of the book. George understands the critical elements in implementing e-learning in an organization and getting it to stick."

—Bob Bodine, director, Global Development, Medtronic Inc.

"Provides a thorough roadmap for serious instructional designers who are trying to increase the value of the lessons they are creating and delivering . . . . this book is a 'must have'."

—Phyllis Wright, director, Training and Organizational Development Human Resources, Baylor Health Care System

"For any training director charged with developing a staff, and for any training staff intent on improving efficiency and effectiveness of instruction, Rapid Instructional Design by Dr. George Piskurich is a must."

—Lynnette Huler, director, Training and Organizational Development, The Nash Finch Company

Book News Annotation:

Piskurich, an organizational learning consultant, explains each step in the instructional design process in conversational language. Emphasis is on practice rather than theory, with checklists, a glossary, and hints. This second edition addresses new topics such as synchronous and asynchronous e-learning, and includes examples of storyboards, professional commentary, and real case studies. The book is written for those who train others from time to time because of their subject-matter expertise, but can also be used by beginning and seasoned training professionals, and by managers and administrators. Pfeiffer is an imprint of Wiley. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
