Instructional Design and Technology “MicroMasters” through edX and UMUC. 4 courses, 8 weeks each, 4-6 hours per week. Free to try, around $800 for verified credits. While I’m not sure how much hands on experience this program gives, it might be a good option for formal education for people looking for something less than a full masters program or even a typical certificate.
Spreadsheet for analyzing LMS needs from different vendors. Add your criteria on the Evaluation Sheet. Criteria are in categories (usability, management, reporting, technical, administration), but you could customize the categories. Rate vendors on their own tab on how well they meet the criteria. The top 5 of 10 vendors are highlighted.
For diversity and inclusion training to stick, it needs support, reinforcement and a firm foundation in a broader talent management strategy that includes culture, leadership and learning and development.
Ask these questions: Does our culture embrace diversity and inclusion? Do our leaders understand their value to the business and the workforce? Do the organization’s talent management strategies and systems support and enable diversity and inclusion? If not, training would be precipitous because the right support for this type of development is not there.
