Purpose and aim of module
The design and delivery of learning and development always occurs in a specific context. It is important therefore that this module develops a critical understanding of the role and influence of a range of contextual factors on the design, delivery and evaluation of learning and development plans and interventions. There is a well-established body of knowledge and theory on learning processes and their application in instructional design and facilitating learning that also influences design and delivery of learning and development plans and events. This body of knowledge therefore forms a significant component of the module.
The module as a whole is intended to develop the professional knowledge and skills required to perform effectively in specialist roles associated with the design, delivery and evaluation of learning and development. It requires learners to reflect critically on theory and practice from an ethical and professional standpoint and provides opportunities for applied learning and continuous professional development.
This module is suitable for persons who:
- have responsibility for human resource (HR) decision making within an organisation at either operational, tactical or more strategic level
- are HR professionals in a team or HR functional management role who are seeking to enhance and develop their career
- have responsibilities for the HR function and activities within an organisation without a specialist function
- are independent or employed consultants who support organisations in meeting their goals
- have HR career and CIPD professional membership aspirations.
On completion of this module, learners will be able to:
- Explain, evaluate and critically analyse the internal and external contextual factors impacting on the design, delivery and assessment of learning plans and interventions in organisations.
- Evaluate, select and apply a range of approaches and processes for establishing learning and development needs at organisational, group/team, occupational and individual levels in collaboration with relevant stakeholders.
- Critically evaluate a range of learning and instructional design theories and principles and apply them to select and justify appropriate learning and development methods and delivery channels with the engagement and support of other professionals and managers.
- Design learning plans and interventions to meet identified needs in a timely, feasible and cost-effective way.
- Demonstrate skills of delivery and facilitation of learning through a range of methods and for employees at a range of organisational levels and a range of occupational groups.
- Design and implement appropriate evaluation methods to assess the success and effectiveness of learning plans and interventions.
- Act ethically and professionally with a demonstrated commitment to equality of opportunity and diversity in the design and delivery of learning and development and to continuous personal and professional development.
