Instructional Design Tips
Just after you get your instructional design assignment, there a few questions that need to be answer before getting to work. MaryAn klein instructs us how to prepare for design by answering five essential questions. These questions will facilitate the instructional design task by providing the framework of the organization in order to understand and anticipate the possible change process and resistance to change. As instructional designers, getting to know the ground before making any decisions is extremely important. For example, one of the questions addresses the purpose of the solution; is it short term or long term? Knowing the answer to this question could give us a starting point on how to initiate the change or modification process in the organization. In addition, it could provide us with some background information and the type of commitment the leaders and the members of the organization have with the company and its future.
