  • Picture of hands???
  • Introductions
  • Either as one big group or smaller breakouts:How big is your learning/training department?How do you describe what you do?What tasks fall into your daily life – write these down.Come back and share
  • Before we talk about where we’re going, let’s talk about where we’ve been…Where did ID come from? The Foundations.Ellen giving us a little lecture – she can show her models, etc. This will be the PekaKucha“You don’t need to talk about it, but you need to pass the sniff test…”What are the secret handshakes???
  • 1. Instructional Designers Live at Intersections
  • Reframing Today’s eLearning Opportunities A framework for eLearning ID -- Quadrant discussion – reframing the questionEach of us give our own story???Reveal elements of the quadrants as we talk about our own stories.Where does process e.g., ADDIE go? Is that business intelligence? Or is it an umbrella.Where does process e.g., ADDIE go? Is that business intelligence? Or is it an umbrella.
  • We could do these as group brain storms…flip charts and people call out what goes under each quadrant???
  • Where did you come into ID? – discussion – flip chart with sticky notes – put your intro…4 walls or whatever and piles of sticky notes.

  • What’s going on in schools vs. industry – Wordles – where are the gaps – what do you need to know to be successful in your job? From the pitches on their website. Expectations between school and practice…each comes from different market segments. (often more focus on technology and production)Issue with the industry – we don’t know where we should be housed. (Should ID be housed in business schools, tech?, education schools?) --
  • experiment with new media, to ascrtainlrningaffordnces” (Clark Quinn on Twitter?)
  •   Is it this?The International Board of Standards for Training, Performance, and Instruction (ibstpi) has undertaken the task of updating its previously international validated and published set of Instructional Designer Competencies (2001). We are asking for your support to help us validate this new version. The validation process should take less than 30 minutes and we hope that you will complete all of the questions so that we have robust data and constructive feedback. Simply follow the link below. 
  •  Your path forward? What does the future look like for ID?Where do you need to enhance your skills to become more rounded? – discussion where are your gaps? What can you do to round those gaps out? Doesn’t have to be a degree? Role of the instructional/learning strategist – tying in game design, etc. Which are such different skills.You can figure out your trip once you figure out where you’re going…journeys and roadmaps and trips…roadmap – if you have a framework – you’ve got to navigate from someplace.
