The Challenge Ahead
As an Instructional Designer, you pick up and learn new tools and software quickly. You apply your new found knowledge to case examples to showcase how clients can use the software, highlighting special features and creating material to showcase all it can offer.
You look at complicated workflows and can break them down into both high-level key concepts and low level instructions that make long-winded processes memorable and easy! You have the skills to graphically showcase relationships between critical elements in workflows, as well as explain in detail how everything fits together.
You know how to create engaging learning activities and compelling course content that enhances retention and transfer, and you love doing it. Your creative mind can visualize instructional graphics and the finished product of your course designs so that you know exact how it will look to engage your learners before you begin. You know how to develop exercises and activities that enhance the learning process and keep participants wanting more. You use experiment to build upon proven methods to create unique content perfect for your environment. Plus, you have a flare for creating supporting materials like audio, video, games, role-plays, and simulations.
