In this paper, we report improvements made and their effect on the design of pre-training preparation in a blended instructional design workshop. Through practical research, the design was refined to include a three-stage question-making activity (QMA) for pre-training preparation. The stages included 1) Submitting a question before the commencement of learning, 2) Working on teaching materials, and 3) Submitting a question based on reflection on pre-training preparation. After verifying the effects, it is suggested that question quality saw an improvement owing to the introduction of the QMA, with some cases becoming more concrete and focused. It was also confirmed that this method can encourage learning motivation by enhancing participants’ confidence, satisfaction, and familiarity with learning content.
