Four Laws of Instructional Design in Education

  1. Let the inmates run the asylum – Empower participants to process the content and discuss them with each other.
  2. Build the airplane while flying it – Design training and teaching while delivering it.
  3. Don’t reinvent the wheel – Don’t design content, design the activity. Use templates that have been field-tested.
  4. Be spontaneously flexible – Combine, omit, and re-sequence the steps in the instructional design process.

Learning Experience with Thiagi

The seven different ways of how people learn in our training sessions leverage multiple intelligences and cater to different learning styles:

  1. Learn from experience. The workshops feature effective and enjoyable training games and learning activities.
  2. Listen to interactive lectures. Our presentations are interspersed with interactive interludes.
  3. Learn by doing. Our approach to activity-based learning ensures that you are able to use the techniques immediately.
  4. Learn by reflecting. We use effective debriefing techniques to help you reflect on your experiences, gain valuable insights, and share them with each other.
  5. Learn from each other. Our activities incorporate the power of mutual learning among collaborative teams.
  6. Learn from the website. The website www.thiagi.com contains 200 ready-to-use training games and 2000 pages of practical advice.
  7. Learn continuously something new every month. As a participant our workshops, you receive a monthly online newsletter with new games and tools.
