The objective of this engagement is to build a cadre of instructional designers in their institutions

Management System (LMS) through preparing and delivering online course content and
accordingly contribute to the modernization process of training and its management.

The training will provide participants with sufficient exposure to Instructional Design and
Pedagogy concepts while also training them on how to create courses using Articulate Storyline
3. Practical exercises throughout the training will culminate in the completion of a model course
to be presented to the training leadership.

USIP’s Role

  1.  USIP and its partners are in the process of developing an LMS on which each institution’s
    curriculum will be uploaded. Instructional Design capacity-building falls within the
    framework of supporting the roll-out of the LMS and equipping the future instructional
    designers with the necessary tools to ensure that the content uploaded and created is
    pedagogically sound, standardized, interactive and engaging as well as consistent with
    international best practices in online adult learning.
  2.  USIP has provided a set of training and workshop sessions related to the training system to
    its Tunisian Partners. Contractor will be briefed about the various recommendations and
    outcomes of the relevant workshops to be able to harmonize their approach to the overall
    capacity building efforts.

  3.  The contractor should be aware that they will be holding separate trainings for partner and that each training lasts a minimum of 5 days and a maximum of 10 days which would require their presence in Tunisia for up to 29 days. It is the specialized contractors’ responsibility to design a course that can sufficiently build the capacity of partners to begin developing their own online learning content. By providing USIP with a clear schedule for the training the contractor and USIP can arrive at an agreement on the number of training days.
  4. It is the contractor’s responsibility to ensure that each course model developed as a result of the training is of sound quality and ready to be presented to the training leadership for approval, and institutionalized adoption.
  5. Contractor will return to meet with their previous trainees to assess work they developed independently following the training and to provide remedial training. The assessment will define the number of days, if any, required for follow up remedial training.
