The Opportunity:

Do you want to develop training that will transform national defense agencies? As an Instructional Design and Curriculum Development Specialist, you know that even the best tools and processes can’t have an impact without the right training. Constructing courseware that teaches critical information and tradecraft requires a real passion for understanding the needs of your client. We have an opportunity for an Instructional Design and Curriculum Development Specialist like you who is committed to solving some of the toughest challenges in national defense agencies by crafting effective training.

On our team, you’ll work with stakeholders and SMEs to capture your client’s training needs and advise them on the right learning solution to help them accomplish their mission. Putting the learner at the center of the training experience, you’ll design synchronous, asynchronous, and performance support material. You’ll build training material with your colleagues while following the ADDIE model. You’ll use your technical skills, creativity, and experience to come up with new ideas to develop an engaging learning experience. You’ll recommend strategies, including blended learning to build a successful learning environment. You know communication is key, so you’ll meet with stakeholders and SMEs throughout the process to discuss learning material and incorporate feedback. To ensure your solution is hitting the mark, you’ll collect and analyze results using evaluation methodologies, then fine-tune your deliverables for maximum impact. This is a chance to use your deep understanding of training methodologies to build a creative learning experience that will engage the warfighter.
