I recently started a new position and have been getting used to not only my new role as an instructional designer but helping our new staff member transition into my old role. My supervisor has set me up for success by requiring an hour a week for professional development. I think it is especially important in a ID position to give yourself time to develop your skills and keep up with the content. Starting in January, I'm hoping to blog about my weekly professional development experiences. My professional development experiences will include (but are not limited to):
Trying new tools/programs
Keeping up with blogs
eLearning Heroes Challenges
My hopes is that my blog will allow for other new instructional designers to find tools and resources that are beneficial to them as well as document my experiences.
I'll see you all in 2017!
