What Do We Do?

We are often asked the question, "What do you do?" Those of us who are instructional designers know that we often wear a number of different hats, making the answer to that question quite a lengthy and detailed response. An infographic at EdSurge that was developed by Arizona State University does an admirable job of explaining some of the many roles involved in being an instructional designer, such as:

  • Communicators
  • Guides
  • Thinkers
  • Builders
  • Designers
  • Explorers
  • Relationship Builders
  • Project Managers
  • Data Analysts
  • Fixers
  • Evaluators
  • And, of course, superheroes
