Stop creating, selling, and buying garbage!

Clark Quinn

One of the causes is unenlightened designers. You know, it’s not like one dreams of being an instructional designer as a kid. This is not to touch on their commitment, but even if they did have courses, they’d likely still not be exposed to much about the emotional side, for instance. Good learning design is not something you pick up in a one week course, sadly. And the pressures they face are overwhelming if they did try to change things.

Are Instructional Designers Making Themselves Irrelevant?

So what does that mean for the poor instructional designer when over 70% of the learning they create delivers poor customer experiences? The easy thing for an instructional designer to do is to rely on simple instinct and maintain the status quo.

General or specific change

Clark Quinn

I was reflecting on the two books I recently wrote about, Scaling Up and Changing the Game , versus the cultural approach of the Learning Organization I wrote about years ago (and refer to regularly). The thing is that both of the new books are about choosing either a very specific needed change, whether determined by fiat or based upon something already working well, whereas the earlier work identified general characteristics that make sense.

Dave Snowden

So, we have just made a radical change to our training and accreditation programme. The new courses are on the web site (see references below) and some are coming up very soon! The changes can be summarised as follows: The two day accreditation programme will be stripped of a lot of the theory plus the advanced methods, and will be more practical in orientation. Finally (and this one is not up yet) there will be an advanced course on narrative based research methods.

They might be persuaded to buy products that can’t really deliver what’s promised.

Clark Quinn

My thoughts are related: Tool vendors should ensure that their tools can support designers interested in these elements. The real issue is in the design. Of course, we’d like them to do so regardless! I’ve argued in the past that better design doesn’t take longer. Similarly, if you’re buying pre-made content (aka shelfware), you should check to see if it also meets these standards. design strategy
