How should instructors and professors educate instructional designers to meet the needs of the modern workplace? This episode focuses on the challenges and solutions facing instructional design educators. It was inspired by a collaboration of three professors teaching introductory instructional design courses in three different institutions under varied conditions.
I speak with one of the professors, Jason McDonald, about their collaboration. Their goal was to learn from understanding each other’s approaches; to identify best practices; and to engage in valuable debate. They also developed a model for cross-institutional faculty collaboration so that other ID educators and team leaders can support each other.
