More learning.
Less yawning.

Let’s be real, workplace training doesn’t have the best reputation. Too often, it’s a snooze-fest of boring presentations and forgettable info-dumps.

​Imagine a world where learning is actually engaging. Maybe even (dare we say it) fun. That’s the power of instructional design – the craft of creating ’sticky’ learning experiences for minds that won’t wander.

WORD ON THE STREET

YES! We have workplace training today!!

WHAT IS

INSTRUCTIONAL 

DESIGN?

At its core, instructional design is the art and science of crafting learning experiences that stick. But it’s so much more than just dumping information on learners and hoping it sinks in (that’s so last century).

At Hungry Minds, we’re the masterminds behind training that doesn’t suck. The learning we create is effective, impactful, and dare we say it… fun.

By taking a systematic, learner-centred approach, we create programs that are:

  • Engaging: We make learning people lean into. Well-designed learning activates minds and sparks curiosity.
  • Effective: We ensure that training is focused, practical and aligned with real-world performance needs.
  • Efficient: Thoughtful design maximizes everyone’s time and energy. There is no filler, no more wasted hours, and no more ‘meh’.
  • Enjoyable: Great instructional design allows for creativity, unpredictability and even a little humour.

The end result is training that’s custom-built for the needs of your learners and organisation. No cookie-cutter courses or one-size-fits-all approaches. Just learning that captivates, activates and truly clicks.

And that’s precisely what we deliver. Every. Damn. Time.

And in today’s fast-moving world, where upskilling and reskilling are a constant, that’s more important than ever.

OUR

WHY

Action-based,
active learning

We believe that learning should be active, whatever the content. This means people are up, moving, experiencing content, enjoying lively debate, solving problems, considering ideas. Their minds are active.

We use a blend of practices to guarantee the quality and effectiveness of our materials.

Before development begins, stakeholders approve the learning needs, scope, and design of the end-to-end learning program, ensuring alignment with objectives. We collaborate closely with subject matter experts (SMEs) to ensure accuracy and relevance. Throughout the development process, stakeholders are engaged in multiple review cycles, providing feedback for refinements. Our team conducts a thorough quality assurance (QA) check before final delivery. For projects involving accredited training, we bring in external AQTF experts to review the course content and mapping, confirming compliance with accreditation standards.

This comprehensive approach ensures our materials meet the highest standards of quality and effectiveness.
