A game changer

” AIDA was a game changer for my career path.”

— Dyan Zuber

“I had been thinking about instructional design for a while before I started this program. I had narrowed my search down to 2 Master’s programs, and was planning to enroll even though I wasn’t sure where the tuition money would come from. A friend referred me to another ID school and through that school I found Jill.

From doing the 5 day Jumpstart, I really connected with the way she explained things and the value she added immediately. The idea of becoming an ID went from being a “someday goal” to a “I could do this within 9 months!” goal. It changed EVERYTHING for me.

Not only did I get skills right away, but everything was laid out before me in a way that I could set goals every week on making progress. Without the program, I would have easily gotten derailed, as I had tried to teach myself tools before. Also, I have a tendency to just dive into every new thing I see, but the program’s steps kept me on track while I was already super busy with a full time job, kids, house, and a husband who travels a lot. Now at the end of the program, I have everything Jill said I would need to get started in ID- technical skills, a portfolio, ID skills, knowledge of adult learning theories, interviewing skills, and a new resume. 

I have 3 contracts that keep me as busy as I am able to be, and I could have full-time work if I wanted it, no problem. In addition, learning within the program is a good lesson in how to create a learning platform, as I keep in mind bits and pieces of my learning experience in AIDA when I am designing new solutions for clients!
