I keep on getting the same question over and over and over again, when I tell people that I am an Instructional Designer. What is Instructional Design? I say, “I design instruction.” Then comes the snarky looking on some people’s face. I know the look because honestly before I went to school for Instructional Design I didn’t know what “it” was.
I searched high and low — honestly — I looked in library of Instructional Design books and saw the same frustrating answer. Out of the frustration, I posted this on myFacebook page:
Instructional Design is a learner-centric systematic approach to instruction which creates effective learning experiences.
