What do we want from our instructional designers? It’s simple, really. We want extremely creative writers who can develop instructionally sound training.
The technical parts are somewhat easier to define. Our IDs understand ID-speak. They know Bloom’s Taxonomy and they can explain ADDIE and D-ADDIE and AGILE and ISD and … well, you get the idea. They also have experience creating a variety of types of training – instructor led courses, experiential courses, eLearnings, self-studies, and assessments. And they’re on the cutting edge when it comes to understanding mobile learning, ebooks and other technology-driven deployment methods.
What really distinguishes our IDs, however, is that they think differently. They think like consultants, so they always have an eye toward figuring out the root of a client’s needs in order to develop the best solution. They think like an artist – a novelist, a filmmaker, a painter, a graphic designer, a singer, a songwriter, a standup comic … – so they keep audiences engaged in the training. And they think like an entrepreneur, so they see opportunities where others see obstacles.
