Here’s what people are saying about DSA Workshops

“Completed the session just today and within one hour I had already found a new use for a team project that was a little “out of control” that really helped get us back on track!”

“I’m already re-working the learning objectives of our various training classes.”

“It was performance-based. We worked on real projects.”

“I want you to know that this course has been extremely helpful in helping me to re-structure my course. I feel that the design is more user-friendly because of its structure and alignment with the key objectives. I am actually excited about the design process now!”

“The Instructional Design course provided me with a fundamental understanding of course development. I experienced several “Ah-Ha” moments during the class. Support of my colleagues and understanding of my customer’s needs has been greatly improved. Thank you.”
