ABOUT THE JOB

As an ID, you have a good sense of how people learn. You also know how to put yourself in the role of the learner, how to reach them, and how to inspire change.

You rely on both your analytical thinking and creative design skills to devise innovative solutions to learning problems—solutions that will connect learners to the information they need, to develop their skills and abilities.

While you love working with a team to share ideas and to hone content, you’re also not afraid to dig into the nitty-gritty details of storyboarding on your own. This is because you are good at visualizing the completed product, and know exactly how to get there. You also recognize that receiving feedback on your work is just part of what you do; besides you’re keen to continue learning and to try new things.
