London, United Kingdom, 2010/02/09 - Saffron Interactive, one of Europe's leading e-learning, mobile and blended learning companies, is proud to announce that Stephanie Dedhar has been named Instructional Designer of the Year at the IT Training Awards 2010.
The instructional designer category was new for the 2010 awards, which were announced at a gala dinner held at The Dorchester in London on Thursday 4 February. Chief executive of the Institute of IT Training, Colin Steed, described the event as an 'annual celebration of outstanding achievement, best practice, and excellence in IT training.'
The Instructional Designer of the Year award is presented to an individual who has developed a learning intervention that demonstrates exceptional instructional design, is innovative and high quality, and has delivered demonstrable performance improvement for learners.
Stephanie's project was concerned with a major compliance training project for BT and the judges were particularly impressed that she demonstrated that she fully understood that instructional design was at the heart of making this project a success. She worked creatively, using a number of innovative instructional design techniques and educated and influenced the client along the way. The outstanding end product and client feedback, from an audience very used to e-learning, speak for themselves.
After receiving the award, Stephanie said 'it's an honour to be named Instructional Designer of the Year and I'm delighted that the judges felt that my work on this project - which I am very proud of - was deserving of this award.'
