Skills, Challenges, and Trends in Instructional Design Infographic
To keep up with the changes in the workplace and in order for learning professionals to be competitive in the evolving global workforce, instructional design (ID) must progress as current conditions evolve, challenges become more complicated, and new trends emerge. Have ID skills changed? What other competencies are needed to be successful in the profession? The Association for Talent Development has partnered with the International Association for Continuing Education and Training and commissioned Rothwell & Associates (R&A) to conduct Skills, Challenges, and Trends in Instructional Design research. R&A President William J. Rothwell of Penn State University led this research. The Skills, Challenges, and Trends in Instructional Design Infographic presents the most important tasks for Instructional Designers and the most often used design models.
