The Design Process: A Panel Discussion on How the Instructional Design Process Unfolds

Are you new to instructional design or an experienced designer looking for insights into how others work? Join us for a panel discussion on how designers use the design process to create their finished product. From the ADDIE model to more agile design models, a panel of instructional designers from a variety of fields will talk about how they work, their thought process, the resources they use, and tips for effective communication with clients and SMEs.

Learning Objective:
