For years NHTSA has relied on the Transportation Safety Institute (TSI) to help develop and deliver training courses to state highway safety office personnel. These courses have been instrumental in providing support to states in areas regarding Program Management, Financial Management, Data Analysis, to name a few. The TSI Motorcycle Safety Program Management Course is a 6-hour blended moderated online course offered over two days. As NHTSA prepares to update the course curriculum, there are several needs that have been identified that warrant the support of an instructional design firm.

The evolution of "blended learning" has become much more sophisticated in recent years - it is no longer an e-learn format with a classroom. The existing course curriculum was essentially a platform to display PowerPoint decks. NHTSA has begun the process of identifying additional and updated content objectives, but the agency requires support in how to more effectively deliver that content. With the broad mixed-ability audience that NHTSA hopes to attract to this course (ABATE members, traffic engineers, public health officials, etc), there is a need for activities embedded into the course to maintain engagement, as well as a variable proficiency objective for each identified audience target. Additionally, NHTSA requires the support to facilitate development of additional products that will augment the classroom time (i.e. pre-coursework, homework in between the two classroom sessions, customized quizzes, scenario development, and experiential learning development).

Action mapping is an industry-wide visual approach to e-learning, which focuses on performance, not information - so what learners need to do, not what they need to know. Action mapping uses activities, which mirror what learners need to do to reach the business goal. The activities put the learner in the work situation, and ask them to make decisions like the ones they would in real life. NHTSA requires assistance in identifying and developing those objectives in a much more measurable way than what has previously been prepared. Additionally, not all student segments will need identical proficiencies (ie, ABATE member vs highway safety office staff), and the action mapping process should account for these identified differences, and allow for modular performance testing.

The objectives of this contract are to:

Review and analyze existing course content. NHTSA has already begun to prepare new content based off internal objectives; however, the agency does not make any assumptions as to how to best deliver those content objectives or if the objectives are exhaustive. The agency welcomes advice on delivery mode, length, and sequence.
