So, to me, the most important skill an instructional designer can have is being able to apply instructional strategies. To know when to use a mnemonic and when to use an analogy. When to model the behavior to be learned and when to provide a check list. When Constructivism
is a good theorietical underpinning for a topic and when a Cognitivism
-based approach is necessary.
Instructional designers add value by serving as catalyst who accelerate the process of learning for individuals.
