IDT 675 - Instructional Design Writing (3)

Incorporate the world of persuasive writing as part of your instructional design toolkit. As an instructional designer and developer it is important to understand how to use various styles or manners of expressions in writing, along with varying points of view and personality to keep your target audience engaged. Learn how to use rhetorical devices to convey meaning or to persuade. These techniques can also be used to evoke emotions within your target audience. Then become your own best editor by learning the art of effective editing for clearer, more concise writing that reduces cognitive load. Students will develop and edit precise instructions for individual and group activities to engage their target audience as well as portions of an e-learning course with the goal to reduce cognitive load, positively influence learning transference, and serve as an on-the-job resource.
