Content Expertise for Instructional Designers
NOVEMBER 10, 2009
We needed SMEs and IDs, but the IDs needed to have a prior working knowledge of the subject of the module they were working on. He had created a lot of training and instructional materials for university classes, but he did not have working knowledge of finance operations. The ones who struggled had little previous knowledge or experience with the module subject. It seems someone with less expertise could have an easier time being an advocate for beginning learners.
