Ask the Instructional Designers: A Cursory Glance at Practice in the Workplace
Thompson-Sellers, Ingrid; Calandra, Brendan
Performance Improvement, v51 n7 p21-27 Aug 2012
The purpose of this exploratory study was to make better connections between what is professed in instructional design degree programs and what happens in the workplace. Findings from the study of how three corporate instructional designers navigated and made sense of their daily practice included the factors that mostly influence their instructional design (ID) decisions, their perspectives on ID theories and models, how they compensated for any deficits in their knowledge or skills, and their hiring preferences.
