Book Description

The Instructional Design Trainer’s Guide provides foundational concepts and actionable strategies for training and mentoring instructional design and educational technology students to be effective across contexts.

Through this enhanced perspective, learners will be better positioned to confidently embrace constraints, work among changing project expectations, interact with multiple stakeholders, and convey to employers the skills and competencies gleaned from their formal preparation.
