Supercharge Your Instructional Design Career: New eBook!

How to Be a Rock Star Instructional Designer: Learn the Ropes from a Corporate Training Veteran and Supercharge Your Instructional Design Career.

Building an instructional design career takes a lot of smarts, hard work, and dedication. Along with understanding the wheels of business and mastering the art and science of teaching adult learners, it also requires understanding the nuances of our industry, including working with our particular breed of clients and team members and keeping up with changing technology and all its manifestations. Not for the timid.

Whether you have a salaried position at an organization or strike out on your own as a freelancer, your reputation as a creative professional is your ticket to interesting and fulfilling work.

You now have a new resource to help you along that path. Catherine Davis, instructional design practice lead at SweetRush, and frequent contributor here at eLearningIndustry.com, just launched her debut eBook, How to Be a Rock Star Instructional Designer: Learn the Ropes from a Corporate Training Veteran and Supercharge Your Instructional Design Career.

Catherine is a veteran instructional designer who has served in many capacities (in-house corporate, vendor, freelance) during her career, and for several years she has led the instructional design team at SweetRush. The e-book clearly brings together Catherine’s best practices, and in reading the book you feel as though you are being coached and mentored as part of her team.

While the book is an excellent resource for those who are new to the e-learning industry and corporate training, instructional designers of all levels are sure to come away with tips to enhance their careers. I’ve written and read hundreds of blogs on instructional design, and I can say that Catherine has tremendous insights and actionable advice for instructional designers of all kinds. I particularly like that Catherine has shared her hands-on experience managing a team taking on an array of complex problems and situations.

The book is organized into sections covering topics including landing great gigs, keeping skills fresh, working with subject-matter experts, and how to make yourself indispensable on the job. The “rock star” theme is woven throughout, starting with a clever infographic (“What Type of Rock Star Instructional Designer Are You?”) and continuing with creative imagery and icons. It also includes three additional resources—tools and checklists that you can use right away at your instructional design job.

How to Be a Rock Star Instructional Designer: Learn the Ropes from a Corporate Training Veteran and Supercharge Your Instructional Design Career is available from SweetRush.
