Instructional Design Workshops

for the Next Generation 


Organizations that want to develop teams of internal employees and contractors on the Short Sims methodology can do so in a live class format. ​ In this workshop, designers will learn directly from Clark Aldrich how to create Short Sims, and end the workshop with their first Short Sim created. Organizations must commit at least 8 instructional designers to a custom Short Sims workshop. The course is 5, one hour synchronous class sessions over 5 weeks, led by Clark Aldrich, and about 16 hours of self-paced work.  All learners must submit a finished Short Sim to earn their certificate.

Or, individuals who want a self-paced program on Short Sims design can do so through our newest offering.  It combines lectures and Short Sims to play, and is structured around students 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.

Either format is ideal for traditional instructional designers and those who have branching story authoring experience that they want to take to the next level. ​  


Learners can earn their Short Sims Certification.
