<p><strong>London &mdash; March 14 </strong><br />The world-renowned instructional design specialist, Neil Lasher &mdash; who is also president of the ASTD Global Network U.K. and a committee member of the eLearning Network (eLN), the U.K.&rsquo;s foremost professional association for users and developers of e-learning &mdash; is running his international two-day master class on a modern approach to instructional design again at the RBS Williams Formula 1 (F1) Conference Centre, in Grove, Oxfordshire.<br /> <br />In addition to learning about the basics of instructional design, learning styles, emotional significance, creative advantage and Lasher&rsquo;s &lsquo;Five A&rsquo;s of Learning&rsquo;, delegates receive a tour of the Conference Centre. This includes seeing all of Williams&rsquo; F1 cars since 1977 and visiting the Williams F1 team&rsquo;s trophy museum.<br /> <br />Since the previous ID course at the Williams Formula 1 Conference Centre was over-subscribed, Lasher &mdash; who also heads up Trainer1, one of the UK&rsquo;s leading independent e-learning specialists &mdash; is running another course at the RBS Williams F1 Conference Centre April 1-2.<br /> <br />To coincide with the start of the Formula 1 season this weekend, Lasher announced that, on May 15, he will be running the first Advanced Instructional Design course at the same location. This one-day course involves delegates initially going through a team-building exercise to become a pit crew working on a real F1 car. <br /> <br />This advanced course is structured to provide highly memorable experiential learning that should remain in delegates&rsquo; long-term memory. By the end of the course, the delegates will have dissected the training they have received, discussing the instructional design (ID) models and learning cycles used, as well as determining the optimal ID model and the ideal blend of learning delivery methods.<br /> <br />&ldquo;Instead of merely looking at, and analyzing, pieces of e-learning, the delegates on the Advanced Instructional Design course will experience the effects of their efforts,&rdquo; Lasher said. &ldquo;This should be highly memorable; after all, when was the last time you got the chance to change the tires on a F1 car under timed conditions?&rdquo;<br /> <br />For some time, Lasher has been running the More Than Instructional Design (MID) course around the world, notably in the U.K., U.S., Russia and Canada.<br /> <br />&ldquo;Delegates receive tips on how to isolate the learning requirements, create the right blend to address different groups and styles, design a course map, identify opportunities for interactivity, learn to consider the correct intervention and practice using creativity,&rdquo; Lasher explained. <br /><br />&ldquo;We provide a process for structuring e-learning courseware to facilitate effective, performance-enhancing e-learning, taking you through the instructional design process,&rdquo; he added. &ldquo;This course will benefit those responsible for assessing, designing and producing e-learning and blended programs and/or who need to know how to assess online learning materials.<br /> <br />&ldquo;The MID course is a fast and furious two days which leaves delegates invigorated, ready to create great e-learning, while the one day advanced course enables the delegates to learn and experience something that is very special indeed,&rdquo; promised Lasher. </p>
