Here’s what to expect from this episode:
What exactly is instructional design (ID)? If you’re unsure, you’re certainly not alone. For many, instructional design is a foreign concept; it’s not like nursing or banking, where everyone has a general idea of what it is.
At its most basic level, instructional design is the creation of learning materials – but it’s so much more than that! In this episode, we’re going over the five-step instructional design process. We’ll explore what this career entails and break down the process in an easy-to-understand way.
- What ID is and why it’s essential
- The difference between corporate and higher ed ID
- The relationship between the subject matter expert and the learning expert
- The process of ID and the ADDIE model
- Breaking down the ADDIE model and how it relates to building a house
Now that you have a better understanding of ID, are you ready to get started? Visit our website for additional resources and information on our FREE five-day workshops on the roadmap for getting into ID.
