Description

The Multi-Disciplinary Instructional Designer explores how the instructional design and development process can be energized and deepened through principles gleaned from other fields of academic study.

Despite their shared academic preparation and theoretical foundations, many instructional designers come to the profession also bearing formative knowledge from a diverse range of other subject areas, career tracks, creative practices, or intellectual pursuits.

Their training, however, typically does not prepare them to leverage these specializations into the creation of more effective educational experiences and materials.

This first-of-its-kind book guides instructional designers to apply key concepts, strategies, and lessons learned from a variety of disciplines - spanning the social sciences, arts and humanities, and STEM - to their practice.

Chapters replete with example scenarios, reflection activities, and field-tested strategies provide an expansive yet actionable reframing of the profession's potential.

By seeking inspiration across disciplines and from the world at large, instructional designers will emerge with robust and revitalized toolkits, ready to enrich their approach to teaching and learning.
