Curriculum Development and Design
Utilizing proven methodologies, we work with you to develop educational programs and content that facilitates active engagement of learners and yields results. Whether you need a brand new training course or need an existing program revised for greater effectiveness, our Doctoral and Master’s qualified instructional designers have the experience and knowledge to ensure your training delivers the right information and extends the learning experience. That means your on-boarding sessions, certification courses, training seminars and other educational initiatives deliver the improved results your business demands.
Our experience includes the design or redesign of more than 100 full academic programs and thousands of courses using this methodology.
An educational program is only as good as those delivering the education. Today, it’s critical that instructors take an active and organized approach to understanding new formats, approaches and strategies for learners. To assure your instructors are fully prepared to teach these formats, we call on the expertise of the Franklin University faculty—who have completed Instructional Strategies for Learning (ISFL) and are qualified and prepared to orient instructors to new approaches.
With extensive experience both domestically and internationally, our instructors can provide onsite face-to-face instruction as well as training through instructional videos, power points, learning modules, blogs, workshops, and webinars. And it’s not a one-time offering. We provide ongoing evaluation of teaching performance through direct and indirect measures that can include portfolio review, quantitative data from our Learning Management Solution, student surveys, mentor review, and class observation.
Assessment of Learning
At Franklin University Learning Solutions, we know the importance of results. We don’t just provide learning assessment for existing training programs—we integrate assessment into the design of our programs. That includes course-embedded assessments that improve the collection of data, an outcomes mapping process, and the application of multiple direct and indirect assessments of learning measures.
We also engage instructors in the assessment of student learning analysis and “close the loop” actions. So as your training initiatives grow, so does your ability to assess efficiency and effectiveness, and take action to continuously improve outcomes.
Franklin University Learning Solutions is ready to help you reach and exceed your business goals.
Interactive Learning Tools
Learning doesn’t just happen in front of a projector or computer screen. To engage today’s learner, training content has to be delivered in new and unique ways. Our team will develop videos, games or other multimedia content that help you effectively extend your training, engage your learners and reach your business objectives.
We have the tools to translate your curriculum into a video that engages, educates and entertains. Using a variety of techniques including traditional studio shoots, handheld camera work, extensive animation and interviews, we work with you to realize your vision.
Often times, the best way to learn is by doing. We have the capability to create easy-to-use programs that simulate complex, real-world situations and settings. For instance, learners can take on the role of a new employee or run virtual experiments in a lab.
Educational games may not be new—but the way that we work with you to build custom games that effectively teach your content is something you haven’t experienced before. We bring your training to life in a way that makes learners want to learn.
You know what your employees need to learn, but you may not know how to get there. The team of experts at Franklin University Learning Solutions will get to know your specific situation and help guide you as you create and implement your learning initiatives. Our insight and knowledge is built on more than a decade of working with businesses and universities. In fact, we’ve worked with more than 400 learning institutions providing consultation, workshops and webinars.
