Instructional Designers as Organizational Change Agents

Wednesday, December 7, 2016
2:30 - 3:20 PM
Room 1

Being a change agent is not something that has normally been associated with instructional designers, yet it is a skill that is often brought to the job. Instructional designers see when learning is not as consistently effective and that learners are not always enthusiastic about learning. Change involves identifying the problem, creating new instructional strategies, pilot research/testing, formative evaluations that lead to downstream revisions, and effective implementation and dissemination to change the culture of the organization. Instructional designers can be effective change agents and this session will cover the strategies that work.
