Leaving ADDIE for SAM January 28, 2013

Posted by karlgrieb in e-SIG Presentations, Engaging e-Learners.


Dr. Richard H. Sites, VP Client Services, Allen Interactions

Analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation (ADDIE) are all important steps in the design of effective e-learning applications or any learning program. While there have been many adaptations of ADDIE, many of them were made before we had today’s tools, challenges, and opportunities. As is being realized by the software industry with Agile, more radical process changes are now both needed and possible. Meet SAM (Successive Approximation Model). The benefits: More efficient and effective processes and superior learning experiences in less time.

In this in-person session, Dr. Richard Sites addresses the power of an iterative instruction design process, how product and process are tightly linked, and the basic challenges that face the modern day instructional designer. With key insights from his years of experience building and designing technology-based instructional products, Richard discusses key strategies to overcome design and project hurdles through an iterative process.

Richard H. Sites is vice president of client services at Allen Interactions and the co-author of Leaving ADDIE for SAM from ASTD Press. He has spent the past 15 years designing and implementing web-based training and tools to support improved workplace performance. His efforts have been in both academia and private industry, including working with many Fortune 500 companies. He is Vice President of Client Services for Allen Interactions Inc., where he is responsible for promoting value-driven consulting and design throughout all Allen Interactions partnerships. He holds a doctorate of education from the University of West Florida along with a master’s of education and a bachelor’s of business administration.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on
the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and
visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
Exceptional work!
