Back to Our Roots: The Nuts and Bolts of Instructional Design

Instructional Designer | International Society of

Pharmaceutical Engineers

Senior Education Specialist| Mayo Clinic

While e-Learning has boomed and become a viable training solution, it may not always be the best solution for your client’s needs.  This session will explore how to analyze a client’s needs to determine the most appropriate approach and why instructional designers should be equipped with timeless skillsets rather than pursuing the latest trends.  Participants will work through scenarios of training needs assessment and discuss which solutions work best.

Improv Your Way to Better SME Relationships

Penny Ralston-Berg 

Instructional Designers Association Chair | Quality Matters

Senior Instructional Designer | Penn State World Campus

The SME / ID relationship can be complicated. Subject matter experts may not understand what designers do and push back on proposed solutions. Designers may not have the experience or confidence to react to a SME's questioning and rejection. This can make communication between subject matter experts and instructional designers difficult. This session will use real-life examples and improvisational games to teach instructional designers how to effectively communicate with SMEs in difficult or awkward situations
