    • Hey Dan — have done the “pull three at random and use them as frame to examine your design” thing a few times. It’s pretty fun. I don’t do it on everything, but it’d probably be a good activity 🙂

  1. Oh, oh! Mission accomplished.
    And I am such the better for it!

    That’s why we love ya, always making us better. 😉

    Darn you.

  2. I am a new graduate student working on a MS in Instructional Design and Technology with the emphasis on Training and Improvement. I am curious if it will be a hard thing to connect with a group or company that you go to change?

  3. I am sorry if I was unclear. I am just starting out in this field of Instructional Design. I am an educator that is in the middle of changing my career, because I am unable to stand for long periods of time and do a lot of up and down. I need to be able to do things from home or go out randomly. My question is “Do you find that when an Instructional Design person comes into a a company do you find that it would be hard for them to connect with the organization and find out what the learning strategy that can be used to help them retain the information that you are trying to convey to them?”

    • Do you mean coming in as a consultant? Yeah, there are some difficulties with that. First of all, you need to get up to speed on the culture of the company as quickly as possible. Also, you aren’t going to have deep knowledge of their content, so being able to pick that up quickly is crucial. Also, you can be contracted for a scope of work that isn’t really going to solve to the problem, but you might be too late to point that out.

      On the other hand it can be helpful to have the outside perspective. People become really entrenched in their view, and somebody coming in and asking “Why?” can be really helpful.

  4. Wow, just discovered this and your blog – awesome stuff! Fascinating preso and it looks like there are lots of other interesting things here too. I’ll be back for more!
