Overview of the SLD Checklist[edit | edit source]
What is the SLD Checklist?[edit | edit source]
The Checklist for Strong Learning Design was developed by Cathy Moore, who is, according to her website, an "internationally recognized training designer dedicated to saving the world from boring instruction." As part of her work, Cathy created this checklist to help instructional designers review existing training materials, asking the question: "Have you designed action-packed materials or a sad information dump?"
The Checklist can help you evaluate a variety of types of training materials, including short self-paced eLearning courses or materials designed for face-to-face training.
Where Can I Find The SLD Checklist?[edit | edit source]
The Checklist for Strong Learning Design can be found in Cathy Moore's blog. We've provided you with links to her blog and a direct link to download the PDF of the SLD Checklist at the end of this lesson, on the References and Materials page.
Permission to use the Checklist for Strong Learning Design is granted by Cathy Moore as long as all resources are attributed back to Cathy, with a link to her site. Information regarding this permission can be found on Cathy's Blog and Content Policies page. The instructional design team preparing this wiki assignment also received express permission from Cathy Moore to reference her Checklist in an email dated February 18, 2016.
In our next section, we'll review the structure of the entire Checklist for Strong Learning Design, and explain how the checklist is used.
