Dear Instructional Designer

I’m always on the lookout for new knowledge. While generally, this is usually the more technical aspects of being an eLearning instructional designer, I also like to work on my knowledge of adult learning principles and other more foundational and theoretical stuff as well. I have listened to instructional design podcasts before but I’ve quickly become disinterested in many of them. Too often they are opportunities to show off how advanced the host is as they attempt to impress you with their vast knowledge, experience, and sophisticated vocabulary.

I’ve stumbled upon a podcast that really has grabbed my attention. It’s called Dear Instructional Designer. The host Kristin Anthony is an instructional designer who has been broadcasting for about a year and I really like her approach. Instead of trying to impress you with her intellect or how vastly superior she is, she instead focuses on what the new instructional designer needs to get started. Her first episode is about building a portfolio and landing your first job, a topic that is near and dear to my heart.
