Instructional Design Workshop. 

For the Next Generation.


Short Sims Design Fundamentals

Short Sims bridge the knowing-doing gap. Short Sims can directly develop the critical skills, from leadership to certification skills, that had previously been impossible to do effectively.  

This workshop is ideal for leading instructional designers who are bored and frustrated with traditional workbook style content and want to use their intelligence and imagination to instead create effective content that learners value. 

And who want a leading role in helping people and communities grow.   

In this Clark Aldrich-led, self-paced course you will:

  • Create your own Short Sim for your portfolio.

  • Avoid the numerous traps of building experiential learning, and act with competence and conviction.  

  • Learn the exclusive process to create this client-ready learning scenario in about 40 hours.

  • Earn a Short Sims certificate.

  • Also improve your skills in instructional design outside of Short Sims.

  • Help organizations teach soft skills, certification skills, and other sought after skills.

  • Be part of a revolution in making education more effective, more action focused, and more fair.

  • Learn a pedagogy that is tool independent.  Many participants use  BranchTrack (including their first-sim-free trial version) for authoring their Short Sims. Articulate is currently not recommended.

Create Short Sims from Anywhere

Our self-paced program on Short Sims design combines 4 focused classes, given by Clark Aldrich, with Short Sims examples to play, and is structured around participants building their own Short Sim through about 16 hours of self-paced work. 

There are two required learner deliverables: 

  • Submitting a Short Sim outline after Class 1, and then

  • Submitting a completed Short Sim after Class 4. 


​These will be reviewed by Clark Aldrich and are required for certification.

This program is also superb as a co-pilot for individuals creating their first "real" Short Sim for a client. 

Discounts available for purchases of 5 or more seats.
