Instruction By Design: The Venn Diagram of Instructional Design

Instruction by Design Podcast

In this episode, the instructional designers from CONHI’s Academic Innovation (Jinnette Senecal, Celia Coochwytewa, and Aaron Kraft) and special guest Babette Kraft, springboard off a recent Educause Review article to discuss the diverse job titles, roles, and responsibilities of instructional designers, instructional technologists, learning designers, and related professions across varied institutional environments. We explore the positive and negative implications for the lack of a universal definition for the field and how educational programs relate to this ambiguity. To wrap up, we contemplate ways for aspiring or novice instructional designers to develop relational professional knowledge, leverage existing networks, and evaluate the type of workplace culture that will best meet their needs.
