Instructional Design Workshop. 

For the Next Generation.

The Build-Your-Own-Short-Sims Workshop 

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 want to use their intelligence and imagination to 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:

  • Learn how to create your own Short Sims for your portfolio.

  • Be able to earn a Short Sims certificate.

  • Help organizations teach sought after skills.

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

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 (including interviewing your subject matter expert for your sim).

There are two learner deliverables: 

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

  • Submitting a completed Short Sim after Class 4, which is required for certification. 

​These will be reviewed by Clark Aldrich.
