I’ve been asked to prepare a course template based on the concepts of CRI (Criterion Referenced Instruction). As you’ll quickly realize, KnowPlace is already applying most of these concepts in its courses, such as the ADDIE model.
The goal of this template is not to retrain the trainers, but to standardize the Look and Feel from this point forward. Another important goal is to help develop a marketing position for KnowPlace. CRI is an internationally recognizable standard that’s already well documented and researched.
In developing this template I’ll avoid referencing the psychological theory behind CRI, and refer often to the superb articles in the eLearning Guru newsletters .If anyone wants to delve deeper into the theory, a good starting point is the Theory into Practice database.
It’s already been discussed that when KnowPlace Instructional Designers become proficient at applying this template and the other concepts of the CRI model, a course will be developed to train trainers in CRI and Rapid Prototyping. A few consultants currently offer a course for $2600USD ($4000 AUD) over 10 days as blended learning.
