More on the 4 C/ID model and workshop:

You work together with fellow participants in fun and challenging exercises that help you understand the relevant considerations when designing instruction for complex learning. The workshop will be provided in English and has a maximum of 25 participants.


The Four-Component Instructional Design (4C/ID) model for (re)designing educational programs continues to grow in popularity. Because of popular demand, Maastricht University’s School of Health Professions Education is now offering a workshop on Four-Component Instructional Design! Even better, more 4C/ID training materials are under construction.


The 4C/ID model provides a large collection of design guidelines, and it is not always evident how you can apply these guidelines in your context. Therefore, to help you understand the guidelines and get started with 4C/ID, in this two-day workshop.


If you are interested, look at the 4CI/D website page and watch the video or visit for more information.



“To fully leverage the power of 4C/ID to create effective, efficient, and enjoyable educational programmes, it is essential that you thoroughly understand its design principles and how they can be tailored to different contexts. This hands-on workshop equips you with the necessary understanding and skills to confidently approach your own 4C/ID (re)design”.

Jimmy Frerejean, PhD (Workshop coordinator)

“The four-component model (4C/ID) is known as a versatile design model for education. Although the model is already being used in many educational contexts, it is still growing in popularity. It offers solutions to many contemporary challenges and problems”.
