Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Instructional Design: Whats in a name?

Learning Visions

If all we do is write training material, then perhaps yes. The ID survey on this blog now has over 200 responses: 62% do not have advanced degrees.

What do you mean by value?

What Tools Should We Learn?

NuggetHead

Honestly, I think the undergraduate Instructional Design programs in universities today should be tossed in the river!
